A fascinating collection, thoughtfully displayed. The Bruegel exhibition was excellent and well worth the trip. There was a school visit there at the same time but the place was big enough for this not to be a problem, and it is great to see children being encouraged to visit and enjoy. The café is great too!

very interesting tour around Holburne Museum. I particularly wanted to visit the Bruegel Exhibition but felt it was a bit pricey

Lovely art and other artifacts, looks out over a lovely park, went here on our tour of bath and would recommend if you are a fan of art, free to enter but have to pay for certain exhibits.

A private collection with huge interest and surprises, lose yourself and be stimulated by everything you see. High quality pieces and beautiful art and pictures in this intimate museum, once a private house. Pop into the snack coffee restaurant looking over the gardens and let your children run free while you drink fresh coffe and sip a glass of wine... More

There are 4 small rooms in this exhibition costing £10 to enter. The information boards are nicely written but the exhibition is a bit light on actual Breugels. Overall we enjoyed our hour there. The Holburne Museum looked very interesting.

Access to the Holburne Museum is free but to visit the Bruegel exhibition, the cost is £10. It was well worth it, especially because this part of the museum was fairly quiet. One really needs to get close up to the paintings to fully appreciate them. Obviously during busy times, this simply is not possible. The rest of the museum... More

This is a great museum which works well for all ages - look out for the drawers at knee level for the kids with the activities in them. This is a gorgeous old hotel building which has been converted into an excellent history/art gallery. Currently there is a great little exhibition on the Breughel family. Ask any of the volunteers...

A long time favourite with local and changing art displays, this iconic building, the end focus of Great Pulteney Street, now has an amazing modern extension cleverly hidden at the back. Refreshments, shop and a little garden add to the experience. Thoroughly recommend this gem.

A beautiful building housing an art gallery, with café and garden. Amazingly it was free to visit (although the exhibition has an entry fee). Very helpful staff. Delightful place which I intend to visit again on my next trip to Bath.
