Museum of Bath at Work, Bath (must see)

Situated on Julian Road, a five minute walk north of the city centre and close to the historic Royal Crescent and the Assembly Rooms, the Museum of Bath at Work offers a walking tour of 2000 years of working life in the city. The museum is housed within a real tennis court that dates from the 1700s, and was regularly visited by author Jane Austen. The route through the museum leads you through a recreated history of industry in Bath, from the Roman era to the present day. The highlight is a full size recreation of a Victorian soft drinks factory. On other floors you can find a fully functioning Bath stone mine, and a number of exhibits celebrating the city’s successes in industry in the last two centuries.

The museum houses educational exhibitions on inventions and industrial development within the city, as well as large historical collections of photographs and sound recordings which document the industrial history of Bath. The museum is open seven days a week from April until October. Opening hours are 10.30am until 5.00pm, with the last admission at 4.00pm. The museum is open on weekends all year round, and was recently refurbished to improve disabled access. Entry is £5.00 for adults and £3.50 for senior citizens, children and other concessions. A family ticket allows entry for two adults and two children for just £12.00.
