Plenty to see for the whole family, the children loved all the activities hidden in the draws. We were very lucky as there was a Camera Obscura in the grounds which was excellent.

This is a small little museum. There is not lot to see. A lot of the objects are very similar. It seemed a little bland, at least it was free.

What a brilliant artist - I have always wanted to see Canaletto paintings - missed them in Venice several times - and then they were in Bath - Brilliant. The cafe is great too - excellent elderflower tea - yum.

The Canaletto exhibition was excellent and also compared other paintings of artists of the same theme & time. The sketches increased the impact of the finished paintings. Well worth a visit.

An easy 10 minute walk from the centre of Bath, with an attractive modern extension. The art at first glance seems unexceptional, but the very friendly & knowledgeable staff bring out much which is of interest. The varied & high quality items in the Holburne Collection are beautifully presented in the new wing,-it's like the V.& A. in miniature. An... More

Visited - for free! (Donations welcome) on a rainy day. Lovely place with plenty of art and silverware etc. However, I found the artefacts found and presented intriguing. Lots of little odd and wonderful things to look at. Also we found that drawers opened beneath the presentation counters which many people were missing out on. I enjoyed the 'fake' or... More

Visited the museum on a Monday morning early, was not many people there so got to look around at a leisurely pace. Was smaller than expected but there are some good pieces. The grounds are very pretty

It is easy and free to access. No too big so you can visit it quickly. If it is a sunny day you should visit the lovely Sidney Park which sorrounds the Museaum.
