Price £6.50

The Museum of Bath Architecture (formerly known as the Building of Bath Collection ) shows how – in a period of only 70 years – Bath developed into one of the most fashionable places in Georgian England.

Although it is a fairly specialised subject, the Museum of Bath Architecture is a great spot to visit if you are interested in Georgian architecture.

What to see at the Museum of Bath Architecture

The Museum of Bath Architecture is housed inside the Grade II* listed Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel and the museum’s exhibits explain how the city was transformed during the Georgian period.

There are displays that show how a Georgian house was constructed as well as displays about the raw materials used in construction, interior design as well as furnishings and upholstery popular during the Georgian period.

The museum also features a 1:500 scale model of Bath, which was commissioned in 1965 and took 10,000 hours to build.
