About Roman Baths Museum, Bath

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

  • Its such a Wonderful Place to be. The technology that was used to build this Beautiful Place and Why is so very clever thought out. Even in today's knowledge. To smell the waters and in the Pump Room Restaurant you are still allows you to drink it. I cannot praise it enough that we are Privileged to be able to still feel the history within its walls.

  • I just loved it. The roman baths are very ancient and historically significant places. The whole atmosphere inside the roman baths area reminds you of old roman civilization. The hot water is magical here that it is said to be coming from natural hot springs.My personal favorite spots in the roman baths compound were the main roman bath filled with water and the other one was the old remains of the ancient roman bathing sites that are preserved and protected well by the authorizity. The place lies in bath. It should be visited once. Great time.

  • I'm not really into history, but I'm glad I visited! You would spend around 1-2 hours here and there is quite a lot to explore. Admission into the roman Baths does come with a audio device which you carry around with you, and is easy to operate. I believe they have different languages on them. Staff were very polite and they also have guided tours at certain times during the day. If your ever visiting Bath I would definitely recommend visiting this place. I was lucky to visit at a quiet time of the day (I have heard queues can develop to get in) there is also a souvenir shop and restaurant which if you visit the baths, you get 10% of in the restaurant

  • First time I've visited in many years. Well worth every penny and a fantastically interesting place. Well put together tour with an excellent audio guide. Lovely place to finish off in the Pump Room with lovely food in s beautiful setting. Worth a visit and a detour.

  • The queue at the baths can get long, so ensure that you get in early. There is a lot of information on site and the baths are a great look into the history. There are a couple of small side streets around the baths with some good gift shopping. Entrace fee at the baths are rather steep, but well worth a one time visit. Get your camera settings sorted for low light as well before entering as there are some dark areas.
