We were walking through the streets of Bath. we came across the museum. It was an interesting place to visit. They were showing an exhibition on Tapestries; quite unusual but enlightening. We also had a coffee in the Garden Cafe.

If you have the time then you won't be disappointed with a visit. I particularly enjoyed the paintings, but there are loads of items to look at. Entry is free, with a few donation boxes dotted around.

You would have to have a special interest in the items on show. Did not spend long here but am sure other people would have found it interesting

Quite near - about a mile. Not a difficult walk and there's plenty to see along the way. Or you can take one of the University buses (during term time) from the bus station, near the railway station, as far as St Mary's... More
