“A lot of tender,loving care.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This by far the best museum we have seen about Roman baths. The scene most people see is the large, rectangular pool. However, this does not begin to show the huge expanse of the underground structure which, including the pool, is 20 feet below the current street level. Plan to spend a few hours. It's worth the time.

“Attraction not to be Missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

All 8 of us including teenagers loved this ancient place with the baths used in
ancient times. Viewing these lovey pools of water took us back in time. Explanations
are easily understood by all. The baths are beautifully maintained. The town
of Bath itself is good for a couple of hours.

“Terrific museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The Roman Baths museum is unique and one of a kind. The exhibits are carefully narrated with the audio walking tour and the children's version ensures that everyone is educated and entertained. Highly recommend.

“Interesting and expensive history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

It is a very fascinating and ancient history that is explained well throughout the exhibits in The Roman Baths. The audio guide, that is included in the quite expensive admission, is very good and I would recommend listening at least to the points that look interesting to you.

We missed the live actors. That would have been interesting.

After the museum and exhibits, entrance to a refurbished pool area (the Great Bath) is allowed. It is quite amazing that I was standing where Romans bathed in the 2nd century AD! Mind blowing! Then, before you exit into the gift shop, you can taste some of the sacred water. Not so bad…compared to Chicago but I wouldn’t keep drinking and drinking it like one lady was doing…just saying.

The admission cost is high but it is a once in a lifetime place to see. And once is probably enough.
