At the Holburne Museum you will find a beautiful and fascinating art collection in one of Bath’s great buildings. Our stunning new extension with its galleries and garden café opens onto the park behind us, serving fresh, seasonal lunches, delicious cakes and fairly traded coffee and tea.
With everything from Renaissance treasures to masterpieces by Gainsborough and from fine embroideries to exquisite silver there is lots to enjoy and explore. An exciting programme of events and changing exhibitions means there will always be something new to discover.
Spectacular new displays now show our collection as it has never been seen before. Admission is free and on every floor you’ll find new and inventive ways to explore our objects and discover many of the fascinating stories behind them. We have lots of free, fun hands-on art activities as well as creative workshops that can be booked in advance.
We are 0.5 miles from the city centre, a 10 minute walk to one of the most enviable locations within the city. We sit within our own grounds, so there is plenty of room in which to walk and the Kennet and Avon Canal runs through Sydney Gardens, the park behind us.
We have a changing temporary exhibition programme for which there is a charge.
The Museum is fully accessible.
