Discover Bath’s 13 marvellous museums

Bath, Somerset

Explore the incredible and diverse collection of museums and exhibitions, all within a short stroll of each other.

Bath has more museums in just one square mile than most other much larger cities can boast altogether. You’ll be the top of the list at pub quizzes after a trip to Bath with so much knowledge to soak up.

Whether you’re into history, fashion, art, the Romans, or the Georgians, Bath has it all. Marvel at the ‘Dress of the Year’ in the Fashion Museum, watch thermal spring water steam up from the Roman Baths, head stateside to the American Museum, and pop into No.1 Royal Crescent for a peek inside Georgian life and the servants quarters below stairs. 

If you’re an art lover, there’s The Holburne Museum where classics and moderns combine in a majestic setting, the Museum of East Asian Art or the Victoria Art Gallery, with collections from Turner and Gainsborough, Scott and Warhol. You'll never be stuck for something to do in Bath.
