This isn’t the greatest fine arts museum ever, but it lends the city of Bath a good deal of atmosphere in any case. It’s located in the Sydney Pleasure Gardens, which used to be one of Jane Austen’s more favoured strolling areas. Once upon a time the garden was in daily use by the rich and noble as a gathering point, and special effort was put into making it homely, and it was lit up by thousands and thousands of candles.

It’s been featured in various movies, even the Bollywood movie Cheeni Kum. The house is another good spot to end up when it’s raining in Bath. The collection of paintings is quite nice, particularly the Gainsboroughs. You’ll see Chinese porcelain, silverwork, books, furniture, and may portraits.

  • The Garden Cafe might be a little pricey but the food is delicious.

  • Buses on Main Pulteney Street

  • The Pulteney Arms
  • The Barley Mow

  • Really interesting museum. Lots of activities for kids. The bag with different activities in was a real success. Lots of exhibits at child level which went down really well... especially the magnifying glasses and draws full of interesting items and things to touch. Really good cafe with a good outdoor space opening out onto the gardens. Definitely recommend for a visit with children. The museum has really made the concept work for all ages.

  • We have visited here many times, great touring exhibitions and a great permanent collection including miniature paintings. A lovely park just behind if you have extra time to spend here. The cafe has delicious food.

  • Excellent free museum that is well worth hunting out if you are in Bath. It's the lifetime collection of the house's resident from a couple of hundred years ago and is a treasure trove of paintings, jewellery, carvings, collectibles and a million other things. Lovely on site cafe in the garden. Lifts to all floors.

  • I strongly recommend even if you are not so much into art like me. Amazing art collection, free entry (you can donate), toilets. Recommend to come at least an hour before closing, cause I didn't manage to see the last floor.

  • Gardens a beautiful, the museum wasn't what we expected but was interesting and the little aquarium was well worth the small cost to get in.
