Rainy Day Activities: Discover Bath’s 13 marvellous museums

Bath, Somerset

Discover the incredible and diverse collection of museums, galleries and exhibitions, all within a short stroll of one another, on a rainy day in Bath.

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

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. 

If you’re an art lover, there’s The Holburne Museum where classic and modern masterpieces combine in a majestic setting. The Museum of East Asian Art or the Victoria Art Gallery hold collections from Turner and Gainsborough, Scott and Warhol too.
