We bought the tickets which included the Fashion Museum. After the Roman Baths we decided to walk up the Fashion Museum even though we were all a bit tired. We are very glad we did. The exhibition is not very large. My kids loved the trying on some the clothes which made for some great pictures.

When we were in Bath the museum was having a bit of a refit (the 21st century manekins were being re-dressed) so entrance to the museum was free. The 18th century costumes were interesting, and a nice touch is that the labels put the costumes in the context of contemporary events. However I will admit I am not fascinated by... More

I was in Bath on a day in January where a lot of things we wanted to do were closed. Thankfully, the Fashion Museum was open. I enjoyed a very educational tour of the exhibition about Georgian fashions. In addition to learning about the clothing, I also learned about English and Bath history. The admission price is a bit hefty... More

A wonderful collection of well displayed clothes from the 1600s to the present day. We even had the opportunity to dress up which we loved. This was my favourite museum in Bath.

We took a short guided tour and also had audio guides. The museum has some priceless clothes going from Georgian to modern wonderfully displayed. Even if you're not much into fashion still worth seeing.

Much more interesting than it's title suggests although it was a fast 10 min hike uphill from the Roman Baths where we bought a combined ticket. Had not realised they were on separate sites. The Audio tour is well worth listening to. Ran out of time on the day and although you can return - the ticket only has a... More

For the ladies in your travel group, this place is a must. Was really surprised to see the old vintage clothing, laid out in an interesting way. Best of all was the boutique area where you get to try on vintage clothing. We had such a blast!

An amazing collection of dress, from Georgian times to current day. Beautiful dresses tastefully displayed without distractions. A chance for some dressing up for young and old with reproduction Victorian outfits for a bit of fun. The audio guide added to understanding of the displays. Staff were lovely too.
