About

This unique collection interprets the rich architectural history of Bath and the men who transformed a provincial town into the world famous Georgian Spa. It 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 building is also home to the Bath Model, a fully detailed architectural model of the historic city centre, giving a unique insight into the layout of the Georgian City.

As well as opening to visitors during the season, the Chapel houses study days and family events from February to November for adults and young people, open to all.
For details of our current events please visit: www.museumofbatharchitecture.org.uk

Museum of Bath Architecture also houses the Archives of the Bath Preservation Trust, which are searchable online. They include the Bath Buildings Record, which can be viewed by appointment. The Bath Buildings Record undertook to record, survey and rescue where possible, details comprising the large number of buildings that were earmarked for clearance as part of Bath’s modernisation in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Many of the images from the Bath Buildings Record have been digitised and are available to view online at www.bathintime.co.uk

The Countess’s Room

In 1765 Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon, built a chapel to fight the decadence of Georgian Bath. Now the home of the Museum of Bath Architecture, this building remains the only complete 18th century Gothic Revival building in Bath. New for 2014 is a room dedicated to the history of the building and the devoutly determined Lady who created it.

NEW for 2016! Children’s trail and puzzle book for families to explore the exhibits.
