I don't think it's worth the entrance fee, they say the visit is about 50 minutes I would say 20 minutes. Not worth it

Got a combined ticket with the baths and only went as an extra. really glad we went. My kids loved it. The handsets were a useful addition and it is curated in an interesting way giving you a real sense of the subtle and sudden changes in style and why that happened.

Very interesting collection of authentic clothing from early times to present day. Well displayed and informative audio guides available. The clothes were beautiful and you could easily follow how the styles, fabrics etc changed through the ages. The Georgian dresses were particularly attractive. If you like fashion dont miss this delightful collection. You even have the opportunity to try on... More

So glad we decided to check this out. Interesting to see how fashion has changed over the years. Listening to handset gave us plenty of information on each item of clothing on display. Trying on the costumes was hilarious

Excellent collection even if you only have a passing interest in fashion. You also get to view the Assembly rooms.

This museum is off the beaten track, but part of the joint ticket we bought at the Roman Baths, so we set out to find it. I wa so disappointed with the experience. Every part of the display paid homage to the rich and the self-indulged who could, despite circumstances prevailing in society around them, ignore poverty and pain and... More

I went to the Fashion Museum by chance and was pleasantly surprised. However, I do have a Discovery Card and admit I would not have been prepared to pay the entry fee.

The exhibits are fabulous, and we found this a very interesting place to visit whilst on a short stay in Bath. The museum provided an audio commentary describing each item and also a written card in each display. We had great fun trying on some of the dresses from Georgian times and there's an excellent back drop for taking your... More

A small museum with interesting clothes, did not take long to see. Small gift shop and café with very overpriced poor choice of food.

We visited the fashion museum to view the collection, "A History of fashion in 100 objects" it takes you from 1600s to the present day. For fans of Gone with the Wind there is a jacket that was worn by Vivian Leigh. Very good exhibits and audioguide..

Thank Ann281
