Our main reason for visiting was the Bruegel exhibition. Having spent time there, we continued by looking at the rest of the galleries. There was plenty to see in the spacious galleries of the beautiful building. Definitely worth a visit.

We came specifically for the Bruegel exhibition, but were very pleasantly surprised by the entire building including the modern rear extension. A venue well worth visiting in Bath.
