I visited the Museum when I was researching wedding venues. They have some really good community events, especially for children. They also have a lovely cafe, which is licensed for a glass of wine / beer etc. Lovely relaxing atmosphere when we visited late afternoon and you can look out over Sydney Gardens.

The museum has a nice exhibition on the history of Bath which is worth looking into. Also the cafe serves good cakes and tea.

The museum, which is free, holds many interesting items if you are keen on historic Bath, (and why else would you choose to visit if you were not interested in history!) Apart from the artefacts the building itself is worth a look. Also has visiting exhibitions. Some are free and some are paid entrance. We viewed an exhibition from a... More

Been before but not to the exhibitions - they were very good but we were disappointed by the cafe. It's well designed with nice views out to the garden but the cafe staff were indifferent and when we asked what the menu choices were for gluten free we were given two choices ... Cauliflower and lentil salad (yuk) or soup.... More

The Holburne gets a head start, its pride of place at the generous end of a self indulgent Bath terrace. The cafe is great, a modern glass-veiled cuboidal annex to the rear that does solid soups and scones. The museum is decent, It is presented very well and with ample information. If you like 19th century crockery then this is... More

There were very few attractions open in January but this museum was not only open but also free entrance as well ! We had an interesting walk round the exhibits which , in a number of cases , were quite unique . Some of the galleries were worthy of considerable attention .

Having visited to see a special exhibition,a little disappointing,I called in the restaurant for lunch.The waitress who served me was streaming with a cold,giving change and serving food without washing her hands.. Whilst I cant be certain that I have contracted her cold I think this is quite likely. Please review your policy regarding staff illness.
