The museum is housed inside Camden Works, a building that was originally built in 1777 as a real tennis court.

What to see at the Museum of Bath at Work

The museum’s initial collection focused on a mineral water bottling business that operated from 1872 to 1969 and it includes a reconstruction of the business’s workshops and bottling facilities.

In addition to these displays, the Museum of Bath at Work also features exhibits on the commercial development of the city including reconstructions of other businesses including a Bath stone quarry and a cabinet maker’s workshop.

There is also a gallery dedicated to local history and the museum’s artefacts include a 1914 Horstmann car and a Griffin six-stroke gas engine.
