The museum is lodged in a repurposed Methodist Chapel, which is interesting in itself. The compact space is filled with every aspect of the design and construction of Georgian buildings. Using videos, tools, diagrams, prints, and physical examples, it takes you through how the 18th Century builders did their work, from site preparation to roofing and decoration. As a housing economist, I found it a fascinating look at what went into constructing these units. At the back of the museum is a three-dimensional map of Bath in the 18th Century. The small shop area includes technical books and period prints.…

A small but interesting museum, with friendly volunteers. The maps of how Bath has grown make you stop and think. There was also an interesting photographic exhibition on when we visited.

A little out the way and off the main areas of Bath is this museum. As I am in the construction industry and have an interest in architecture we decided to pop in. The reception/shop was very minimal really and upon paying and entering we were told there was to be a film crew to video some exhibits. Which was nice to be told so we could avoid them. For the architecturally minded there were some interesting pieces, some nice sections of the buildings an floor plans and a few pieces on the stonework etc. but the main highlight probably was the very large scale model of Bath. Could have done with a bit more to see and more interactive items. Only digital thing in there was a few tv's and dvds to be played. I'd advise getting up to speed with the times especially when there are great opportunities in Augmented and Virtual reality utilising the 3D models which can easily be sourced from heritage buildings.…

As a frequent visitor to Bath I had never visited this lovely little museum before. It is small but really interesting and slightly quirky. It is fabulous and I will definitely visit again.

Hi Louise, Thank you for this enthusiastic review! We're always glad to hear when a resident or regular Bath visitor pops in; we think it's a case of 'once discovered, never forgotten'! Do recommend to others and we look forward to seeing you again one day. Next year's exhibitions are themed on Music - both the architecture of music venues, photography of such places, plus we'll be playing the Chapel's precious organ and holding concerts. See you then, Janey

A small spot in a quiet section of Bath. Prime location for any architect nuts, and a great place to start your visit. Unfortunately a section was closed for refurbishment, but overall a good spot to visit if you want to learn more about the history and building of the town.
