I had wanted to visit this museum for some time and really looked forward to the visit. I guess I should have realised the emphasis would be on Georgian costume but perhaps this should have been made clearer in the publicity. There were costumes from other era's but not a great deal. It is quite a small museum which would... More

We visited this with a Roman Baths joint ticket, probably just as well as we thought the stand alone entrance price was a little pricey considering what there was to see. We enjoyed it, the exhibits covered the Georgian to (nearly) the present day. Mainly dresses and a few accessories. There is DIY audio guide which was very informative, but... More

We loved the way the museum was set out. The audio guides were great. So much information. We learnt a lot about the history of fashion. Loved the store rooms with all the boxes!

I have been wanting to visit this museum since I was about 9. I have always loved fashion, especially the history of fashion, so at 31 years old I finally got the chance to go to the museum... And I am afraid it was a bit of a let down. On arrival I was greeted by quite a non communicative... More

THis museum portrays a unique perspective on fashion through the eras. Not really a place for children but very interesting for anyone who sews or is interested in fashion. There are some unique pieces as well as as "what were they thinking moments"

Ever since the age of 15 when i was doing my gce dressmaking i have wanted to visit the fashion museum, so perhaps my expectations were already high. We walked into an amazing collection of georgian clothes and i was so excited to move forward thinking that the same amazing collection of other eras would follow, especially my favourite era...

My Boyfriend took me here, was a great museum. I enjoyed looking at all the clothing, especially the Chanel pieces. (my favourite designer) If you are into fashion then I wouldn't give it a miss!

This was OK for me, but not that exciting. It was under reconstruction when we were there so perhaps I am being a little unfair, but unless you like period clothes and reading lots about them then perhaps avoid. I think we spent about 45 minutes here only and enjoyed the walk around the historic building more than viewing the... More

We came across this museum on our stroll through Bath. It was a great collection of fashion throughout history including contemporary styles. There was an area where you could dress up in period and take photos. Photography was allowed throughout the display. I noted that it is not just a gallery but houses important pieces for the future.
