We spent three hours here and pretty much timed out; so much to see and learn. The audio guide was wonderful, and we enjoyed the humorous touches with the Bill Bryson commentary.

Wasn't looking forward to going to the baths as I literally thought it was just an old smelly pool, but the geology and the story of the how the water was sourced and how grand the site used to be was very interesting.

A unique and wonderful place to visit. Bought a 'double' ticket for the fashion museum as well. Audio guides told the story as we walked around. Everything was working and in good condition,this is not always the case with museums. We could find the answer to anything we wanted to know from helpful and pleasant staff around the building. I couldn't believe how Bath had improved the place since my last visit - over thirty years before!

Spent 2-3 hours soaking up the history! A little pricey but worth it.Interactive displays brought it to life.
