Totally enjoyed the variety of exhibitions in this home turned museum. Everything was donated by the families of collectors so the personal stories involved with the collections made them more personal than most museums. Superb afternoon activity.

The Holburne is full of great paintings and valuable objects to see, laid out over 3 floors. The staff are all volunteers, welcoming and enthusiastic about the place. They frequently have exhibitions on, and at the back is a delightful coffee shop where you sit in or relax under the view of Stanley Gardens. And the most incredible and best... More

A lovely small/medium museum with good displays and until September 2015 an exhibition of Canelleto's work from his time in England. (There is an extra charge for this). Opens at 11:00 on Sunday not at 10:00 and Safari/Google state on their search engines.

This museum is not in the very heart of Bath, but it's well worth the walk. The exhibits are lovely and it's not just an art gallery, it covers, like the town itself, a lot of the history of Bath.

Some certainly interesting exhibits which are worth your time in an externally interesting building. However the staff seemed to feel that visitor interaction was beneath them, access was not especially wonderful & the catering was appallingly expensive

A little jewel tucked in a lovely area. I can't rate it high enough and most people miss it. Well worth a visit. You will return again and again.

This is a chance to enjoy a museum that has history and interesting art. Docents are very helpful. There is a nice cafeteria in the back on the lower modern addition.

Loved the Staff—so helpful and they made Holburne come alive. They wanted to share his story and show one how the interactive devices aren't just for kids!

After walking along the canal from Bathford, stopped in the garden tea room via Sydney Gardens. Room is lovely and they offered good selection of teas and coffees. They even had a gluten free almond cake that was delightful.

A charming old mansion with a modern extension on the back, it house the personal collection of a man fascinated by art. The docents were very helpful to us and showed us more than we were aware of. There are lots of drawers for younger visitors to pull out to get closer to objects, to touch things, or play some... More
