One to tick off the list

We went here as we heard it was one to do if you go to Bath. It was informative and interesting but I think they rely on tourist trade and the name as prices were dear.

A lot of people just go and make a purchase but it's well worth going in for a meal if only to drink up the atmosphere.

The museum, under Sally Lunn's, although small, is fascinating. Archeologists have dug down, though the layers of history, to reveal foundations far older than the current building, and artifacts reflecting its uses, through the centuries. There is also a reconstruction of Sally Lunn's original kitchen, now sunk to basement level, due to the raising of Bath's pavements, in the 18th... More

We did a quick stop at Sally Lunn's Museum before heading back to London. During my trip research, came to know about Sally Lunn and why this place is so famous. We went down to the basement, where the museum is, and bought a bun, to try to Sally Lunn's special bun. You could actually see where the buns were... More

Very small museum but packed with history. The foundations go back to Roman times and then forward through the Saxon and Tudor periods.The building has been part of a Benedictine monastery and there is even a faggot oven. Amazing little place.

Nice to see where the legend began, good place to buy the buns (which do not have fruit n them) and to see a bit of history.

The place from the outside looked really old. The tea rooms were small and quaint. The Sally Lunn bun was really tasty,,especially the ginger one. The museum downstairs was small but genuinely really old. It was also free .

On a recent visit to Bath we thought a visit to the Sally Lunn museum would be an essential part of the trip. Museum?? If an old staircase leading to a miniature room which looked to be holding essentially junk is a museum then the tourist board have worked wonders with their marketing. Specific thanks to the surly lady grunting... More

Free so one cannot complain. The member of staff gave good answers to any questions but the attraction was limited - I guess there's little tat can be displayed about a really old bakery.

Yes, it is a museum but you have to pass by the goodies! The museum itself is very interesting. If you are claustrophobic you would need to think about going down.
