After being so inspired by the Roman Baths we had pretty high expectations for The Fashion Museum and had bought the value ticket for both but we were a little disappointed. It's a fairly small museum and could be more engaging especially for children. There is a dressing up section which is fun but it is a bit more of... More

A brilliant exhibition of costume through the past 3 centuries-good clear audio descriptions to listen to in your own time. Very enlightening & well worth the visit-(Ticket offer for multiple attractions available!)

Great insight into fashionable clothing through the ages. Their request a garment viewing service via their web site is a brilliant idea.

I loved visiting here and seeing dresses throughout history. It was a really nice thing to do for me and my mum who came to visit Bath.

This was another of the highlights of our visit to Bath. The Fashion Museum is housed within the Assembly Rooms where at the height of Georgian and Regency society, men and women would gather to mingle, dance and gossip resplendent in their finery. Where better to house a collection that begins with that glittering period and continues through the ages?... More

I was desperate to see this but very disappointed as it is not that big, I have seen much better in the Midlands, in and out in 45 minutes.

£8.25. Says free on signs going to it but when you arrive after a hill walk. Cost is well to high. They be better asking for contributions. Can't see locals or British people paying that price. That's each!!!

I work in fashion so naturally have an interest. When I found out there was a fashion museum in Bath it was at the top of my to do list. Loved every bit of it, especially a dress by Schaparelli as I have never seen any Schaparelli items in the flesh before. A must see if you have any interest... More
