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

user-pics
Google+
  • As the main attraction in Bath the place was indeed worth seeing. With the entrance ticket you are given a guide which provides very detailed commentaries, not of just the baths, but also of the accompanying museum. The museum indeed had great exhibits, and you can really spend some time there listening to the guide and reading everything in details. Great though if you come on busy days be prepared to queue for quite a bit.

  • Extremely well preserved Roman baths. Excellent recorded guided tour in several languages. Real person guide also available in English. Disabled/mobility problem access available. Very helpful stuff. The price is quite high but the visit can take several hours. Very good value.

  • The must see venue in Bath and lived up to expectations. The layout of the venue supports the voyage through history you embark on when you walk through the doors. Each exhibit takes you back in time to experience how the Baths would have felt in Roman times. I had not expected the breadth of exhibits we found and did not lose interest over the 3 hours spent. Particularly enjoyed the way 3d images were used to bring depth to the displays, very clever. The scale of the venue is also impressive however it did feel cramped at times due to its popularity. Fantastic day out.

  • A must do tourist/visitor attraction. Accessible history well presented for all age groups and interest levels. Maintained to a high standard and covering the topic really well. Take your time and allow the museum to roll back the years in your mind.

  • What can I say? This is somewhere you have to visit at some time in your life. So full of history. Quite expensive to go everywhere and do everything, with the baths, the tunnel tour, the stone tour,etc, but fascinating. And the guides are helpful and knowledgeable,bringing all the old buildings to life. Personally, I loved the Tunnel tour and couldn't believe how far they extended under the city. We never imagine as we walk around the shopping centre what is beneath our feet! The Pump Room café is delicious, again a little expensive, but an experience in itself with the pianist or string quartet and often people dressed in Victorian-style costume. You can usually "partake of the waters" there for free. It has to be done even though the water tastes awful!
