This is a fantastic small museum very close to the Pulteney Bridge in the centre of Bath. I attended the museum with the purpose of seeing their current Canaletto exhibit.

Holburn Museum has a great collection for those who love porcelain in particular. The setting is perfect and the "new" addition floods the place with light. My only complaint was the service of the restaurant which has great views and interesting food but service is slow and certainly on the busy day I went seemed to need a manager.

This museum has mostly art and china plates etc on show. It is a beautiful building and fairly small so an hour would suffice to see everything. There is also a shop, cafe and gardens. This is a free entry attraction. It is just down the road from the Macdonald Bath Spa hotel.

Lovely Museum with a great selection of 17th century Dutch works and interesting collections from 18th century Britain. The Canaletto exhibition looked good, but small for how much money it cost. Friendly staff who were willing to discuss the current installation.

I went with my 20 year old son and we thought we'd spend half an hour in there as neither of us are particularly into art. Two and half hours later we left amazed at how the time had flown by. A really interesting collection with knowledgeable staff to hand to help you enjoy your tour.
