Overview

The Museum is now closed for the winter, reopening on 13 February 2016. This unique collection interprets the rich architectural history of Bath and the men who transformed a provincial town into the world famous Georgian Spa. It demonstrates how classical design influenced the buildings and illustrates the construction of a house from the cellars to the rafters. Based in the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the building is also home to the Bath Model, a fully detailed architectural model of the historic city centre, giving a unique insight into the layout of the Georgian City.

A fascinating and absorbing museum for anyone with an interest in historic building. Tables of Lego should keep children occupied whilst adults can study the displays.

If you have an interest in architecture this is worth the visit, displays are well laid out on the construction methods involved in building a Georgian row house. Having said that some of the displays could stand to be repaired and updated, and hopefully visiting...More

I'd never heard of this so congratulations for linking up with other museums on a combined ticket as it really raises its profile. The exhibits themselves are a bit of a jumble, I didn't feel there was a coherent story and items I picked up...More

A single room with exhibits about the various building trades and how they build and maintain old buildings. There's also a big model of Bath.

We probably wouldn't have gone here if it wasn't for the combo ticket, but it was an interesting quick visit located in an old church.
