This museum is lovely to visit as it is small and intimate.
The collections are very diverse and interesting. I particularly like the pull out draws which shows more displays.
The museum is also set in lovely gardens and has a very good cafe serving seasonal fresh local produce

Well presented exhibits in a beautiful building. Worth a visit just to see the architecture of the new extension.,

It has many interesting painting and other art objects, wonderful temporary exhibitions, very friendly and helpful staff, nice setting in a park just a short walk from the busy Bath center, and an excellent café with great salads and cakes.

The building is amazing, love the sensitive mix of georgian and ultramodern architecture. Changing facilities and loos good. Exhibits interesting but could do with more context. Not that interesting for small children. Cafe quite good.

The Holburne Museum is a real treat; it hosts a small but eclectic collection which is displayed beautifully, it's really interesting. It's also family friendly too - younger children receive a questionnaire where they have to find certain exhibits - good fun and not too taxing. We all had fun with the silhouettes and the wigs!

The cafe is also excellent, good food and service. I've been to events hosted at the Holburne too - very professionally done and again, excellent food and brilliant service. I'm looking forward to the concerts and the light installation, which is I'm told sensational.

My only small criticism? The volunteer museum staff can be rather over-zealous in their monitoring of the children, we did feel that one lady was practically perched on our shoulders! But all power to the army of volunteers who make up the majority of the museum 'guards' - or should that be 'guides'?
