Museum of Bath Architecture
Please note that due to COVID-19, the Museum of Bath Architecture is currently closed.
Interpret the rich architectural history of Bath and discover how it was transformed from a provincial town to the famous World Heritage City it is today at the Museum of Bath Architecture.
The fascinating museum demonstrates how classical design influenced the buildings and illustrates the construction of a house from the cellars to the rafters.
Based in the historic Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the only complete eighteenth-century Gothic Revival building in Bath, the building is also home to the Bath Model, a detailed architectural model of the historic city centre, giving a unique insight into the layout of the Georgian city.
The museum also houses the archives of Bath Preservation Trust, searchable online, and which include the Bath Buildings Record, viewed by appointment. This record tracks, surveys and rescues details about the large number of buildings earmarked for clearance as part of Bath’s modernisation in the 1960s and 1970s.
