Rainwater from the nearby Mendip Hills heated up deep in the earth rises to this outlet at a rate of over a million litres every day. The Celts found it first, and built a shrine to Sulis here, but it was the Romans who brought style to the place. After conquering, they wasted little time deifying the place to the Roman Minerva, and over three centuries and some heavy-duty engineering, built up a grand bathhouse around it. Curse tablets found in the area suggests the presence of pranksters who’d filch the clothes of the bathers. After the Roman era, it fell into disrepair and was revived periodically by the British.
The museum currently displays objects (usually coins or tokens) that were thrown into the Bath and the marvellous architecture and statuary of this ancient establishment. You’ll have plenty of photo opportunities so make sure you use them. After your foray into this little bit of history, if you want a taste of the real thing, head over to the Thermae Bath Spa nearby.

Roman Baths Museum, Bath Reviews - Write a Review
I really enjoyed my visit to Roman Baths. There are plenty of things to see inside. Allow at least 3-4 hours to get the maximum out of your tour. Make sure you get the free audio device they provide. That will give you lots of information as you walk. It is very easy to walk inside as the path is clearly displayed using arrows / sign posts. Thanks for keeping this attraction neat and tidy.
Tickets were very easy to get here, and the lines were well taken care of. There are a lot of guide options, from audio assisted, guided, and self tour. I highly recommend the guided tour, it is free as part of your admission, and the staff are experts on everything inside. Even with a school of children visiting while I was there, plenty of room to adjust was available. I can't say enough good things about the guided tour staff, I felt like I was in a 4 star documentary. They are very enthusiastic about the history of this site, and welcome questions. It made this particular visit, one of the best experiences I've ever had.
Great experience. Not to be rushed, allow a good 4hrs to get the full pleasure from this stunning place. Book online! I called in on a whim and it cost me £15.50. Can be a bit busy, so don't be rushed by other people. The audio guide was excellent and brought it to life.
BLEW MY MIND!! Much larger than I expected so that was exciting. Way more architecture to walk through than I thought there would be so it became so much more incredible of an experience. Gorgeous and creative. Well beyond their time. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place!! Inexpensive, no lineup and the audio tour is perfect. You should expect to get through it in. 1.5-2 hrs depending how many audio clips you listen to.
This was a bit better than expected - we went late in the day - a couple hours before closing so the queues were gone and we could get to see averything. It's well done with a free (well, included) audio guide with a channel for kids. Lots of photo ops. Not great disabled access but there are lifts and things and a very uneven floor - saw several people trip! But a good and well preserved site and worth a visit.
