What a find! If fashion history interests you then this is definitely worth a visit - even my long-suffering husband found it interesting! I couldn't believe the age of some of the exhibits and how short Queen Victoria must have been! A good range of exhibits and the use of handsets for the commentary was a bonus too. All this... More

This is a must see for anyone with an interest in authentic period clothing. The range is vast and very well displayed. We enjoyed the experience noting the influences of historical styles as they have reflected the historical needs of the period in which they were created. Lovely to see children enjoying the activities and trying in the outfits.

I'm not a fashionista, but I do enjoy studying the creative aspects of fashion, fabrics and design. This exhibition is very simply presented with models dressed in the garments of the era from the 16th century right up to the present - a journey through time via the clothing of the day. The lighting is necessarily low to preserve delicate... More

Rich collection of (mostly) women dresses, documented and available audio guide, in an underground museum, a bit claustrophobic, but my daughters liked it.

This is a wonderfully full collection. The photographs on the wall going down to the collection are super. Really worth the money. It is housed in the Assembly Rooms which were lovely to see - but we never got a glimpse of Mr Darcy or Elizabeth Bennett!

Great museum. Also visit the Assembly Rooms at the same time as in the same building. Buy a joint attraction saver ticket for the day to also gain entry to Baths Roman Baths.

The Fashion Museum was beautiful and it tells the many stories of the times. The clothing was stunning and depicted the era. Even if you are not into fashion this museum is worth exploring.

While my husband elected to wait in the snack area upstairs, I decided to take advantage of our ticket for the Roman Bath tour which included admission to the Fashion Museum. I thought I would take a quick look. Needless to say, from the start, I was drawn into what I was seeing, and between listening to the headset audio... More

My daughter and I visited the Fashion Museum in Bath. Well worth a visit! Focus is mainly on women's fashion rather than men's with scores of dresses from 1600s through to the present day, including a dress worn by Queen Victoria. Lots of background information also available by audio.
