I was in Bath for the Jane Austen Festival (Sept. 2013) and went on a number of walking tours where I learned just a tiny bit about how the city was constructed and some of the challenges the planners of Georgian Bath had to overcome. So I made a point of squeezing in a trip to the Building of Bath museum to try to get a better understanding of the construction of the houses and the city itself. It was definitely worth the time.
I also was interested in the history of the building the collection is housed in...the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel. This woman's interest Methodist Christianity and the chapels she built around the country is a fascinating story in itself.
I'm not a construction or architecture buff, particularly. Mostly a history enthusiast, really. I thought the exhibits were quite clear and interesting for someone without a tremendous amount of technical background.
