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.

The first comment is that this museum it is quite hard to find. At the junction of Broad Street, The Paragon, Lansdown Road and George Street, you walk along the raised pavement on the west side of Lansdown Road until you come to an iron...More

A really interesting museum housed in an old chapel. The centrepiece is a huge model of the entire city, very detailed. Find out how the Ashland stone walls were built and how a sash window works. They have John Wood's draughtman's instruments and some of...More

it is further away and very small - the model of the City of bath was comprehensive and there were detailed videos and explanations of carpentry and building methods . If not sufficient time, go to the other museums first -

I'm not an architect but thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It is informative and interesting. The history is interesting, and there's so much technique behind the construction and its development. I wish I could have visited this museum on the first day of visiting Bath so...More

This didn't take a lot of time, but we enjoyed it. It's not a large museum and isn't particularly unusual, but it did offer some insights into architecture and history of Bath, so I think it was worth it. There was a great lady there...More

This museum gives you a totally different perspective of Bath and how it was constructed. Hands on, and very informative and well presented

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.

Bath's Georgian architecture is what it's known for... but the sameness of the yellow stone and modest adornment on every building was a bit bland to us.. This museum does a good job of explaining how and why it came to be.

A small but excellent display takes you through the construction of a Georgian house from foundations to final decor. A lot of fascinating information for the layman with an interest in the making of buildings. Excellent model of Bath City as well. A bit hard...More
