“A great little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This museum is lovely to visit as it is small and intimate.
The collections are very diverse and interesting. I particularly like the pull out draws which shows more displays.
The museum is also set in lovely gardens and has a very good cafe serving seasonal fresh local produce

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

It has many interesting painting and other art objects, wonderful temporary exhibitions, very friendly and helpful staff, nice setting in a park just a short walk from the busy Bath center, and an excellent café with great salads and cakes.

“Nice cafe, museum ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The building is amazing, love the sensitive mix of georgian and ultramodern architecture. Changing facilities and loos good. Exhibits interesting but could do with more context. Not that interesting for small children. Cafe quite good.
