Owner description: The Museum is now closed for the winter, reopening on 13 February 2016. This unique collection interprets the rich architectural history of Bath and the men who transformed a provincial town into the world famous Georgian Spa. It demonstrates how classical design influenced the buildings and illustrates the construction of a house from the cellars to the rafters. Based in the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the building is also home to the Bath Model, a fully detailed architectural model of the historic city centre, giving a unique insight into the layout of the Georgian City.
Useful Information: Activities for young children, Bathroom facilities, Wheelchair access, Activities for older children, Stroller parking

This museum presents a comprehensive look at the buildings in Bath and how they were constructed - everything from the plan to the final trim. There is a video as well as interesting displays of all aspects of Bath architecture and decor, and some very good models. Make it one of the first things you do in Bath so you know what you are looking at and what to look for as you wander the beautiful streets.

Had greatly looked forward to re-visiting the now extended exhibition; unfortunately, closed for the winter season. Hope v. much it may be opened for the whole year in 2013-4.

Small museum about the history of the architecture and planning of Bath.
I loved it and was very impressed with the enthusiasm and knowledge of the staff.
Quiet and off the beaten track but not far from the central area.
Very affordable at £4 although we bought our ticket with the No 1 Royal Crescent one which saved us £2.
I've been visiting Bath since I was a child and this gave me a whole new insight into it's history. I spent the rest of the weekend looking at the architecture with a completely different viewpoint.

Brilliant little museum, the best in Bath. So interesting, great exhibits, really recommended and yet so few people seem to go. Very central too.

This is a very interesting history of the construction of this unique city. It gives a good background before going out to see the beautiful architecture.
