Went to see the photographic exhibition that was on, not disappointed, there is a new modern extension to the museum with a nice restaurant over looking the gardens

“An enjoyable time for Art lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

In my opinion, one of the main attractions in Bath, hosting a great collection of 18 th century paintings. Besides that, a peak into William Holbourne's life, one of the personalities of the 18th Century.Also an small exhibition of cutlery and dishes from the same time period.

“Alright way to spend an hour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Free, which is good as it's not worth paying for. Lots of bits and pieces of Georigan stuff, with no particular significance. The miniature portraits were good, as were the magnifying glasses and the drawers you can pull out.

“Beautiful museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

It's a free museum, worth the visit for the building alone. The collection is quite nice as well. Make a donation.

“Decent Collection of Portraits”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

Nothing very distinctive on show, and the most annoying banging door in the main gallery
