Fashion really isn't my thing, but that didn't keep me from having a blast at the Fashion Museum. The only reason I even bought the ticket was because it came as a combo ticket with the Roman Bath Museum. I must admit, though, that I enjoyed myself. I found it interesting to see how fashion has changed over the years.... More

When you first walk in you get the old style clothes they wore and even get a chance o try some of them on which was a good laugh! The further you come the more up to date the fashion becomes and it's quite interesting to see how we are still influenced by previous eras. Whether you're into fashion or... More

We had a wonderful time in this museum. The clothes are gorgeous and well-preserved ! I spent 4 hours there, sketching and drawing the 18th century dresses ! We could dress up with victorian clothes, it was great fun !

As a lover of fashion, clothes and history this was the perfect place for me to visit. The museum is arranged chronologically so that you can chart the history of fashion from the early 18th century. the have a very unique collection and it is extremely unusual to see some of these pieces as they are so dated. many of...

We bought tickets for the fashion museum along with our entrance to the Roman Baths as this saved a few pounds. The Georgian part of the exhibition is fascinating and it is amazing that these clothes have survived so well, some of them look brand new. the Audio tour was helpful as were the printed cards and information around the...

I have not been to the Fashion Museum since I was a kid growing up in Bath and it used to be called the costume museum. Things have not changed that much, although fashion over the ages is a perhaps a better name than "costume museum" which could also include the odd bear or clown suit.... which the museum sadly...

Really good fun with excellent information and costumes on display. Particularly enjoyed being able to try on the costumes and have my photo taken, great touch. We also visited the Assembly rooms at the same time, after reading vast amounts about these rooms it was great to finally see them and imagine how there were used. Excellent tea rooms too.
