Amazing architecture around outside- never seen anything like it. Such amazing architects of a by gone era. Lovely house with clear information to read and learn about the history of it. Easy to get to in town would advise a walk up to there or the tour buses can drop you off- driving not advisable as no visible car park.

We absolutely love visting museums but this was Not good value for money. It cost us just over £30 for not a lot of history or artefacts.

A couple of friends suggested it wasnt great, but wanted to make our own opinion. We should have listened to them!

The views of the crescent are spectacular though, from the upper storey floors.

This isn't suitable for children, in my opinion, as there is not that much to enthuse them or even hold their attention.

I won't be recommending visiting inside. The Royal Crescent itself is worth the view however.

Dear Adrian,

I'm very sorry that you felt so disappointed with your visit. If you are still in Bath - or due back soon - can we offer you free admission to one of our other museums instead? Perhaps the Museum of Bath Architecture which is very absorbing, and puts the building of the Royal Crescent 250 years ago in context? Do email jabbott@bptrust.org.uk if so. Thank you and kind regards, Janey

This museum was so enjoyable. The staff are full of stories and tales of what it was like to live in this Georgian era town home.
