The No.1 Royal Crescent Museum in Bath is re-opening its doors in August. Located in the famous Royal Crescent, the house at No.1 was restored and re-furbished to give an insight into what life was like inside a fine Georgian townhouse. The museum is open Wednesday to Sunday. Visitors numbers is being restricted and tickets must be purchased in advance on their website: https://no1royalcrescent.org.uk/. Face-masks are required for all visitors aged 7 and older.
The Museum of Bath at Work has also re-opened its doors. Through the re-constructions of Victorian work-places and factories the museum gives an insight into Bath's industrial past as well as displaying other interesting exhibits into Bath's past e.g. the Bath Chair which was used during the 1800s and up to 1949 to transport the sick (and healthy) around Bath. The museum is open daily in the afternoon. You do not need to purchase tickets in advance. For more information, please visit their website: http://www.bath-at-work.org.uk/
These museums join the Roman Baths Museum and the Holburne Museum which opened in July. At the Roman Baths Museum you can see the well-preserved remains of the Roman Spa that was built over the city's hot springs. During August the Roman Baths Museum will be extending their opening hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 8pm (last admission at 7pm) and will be lighting up the baths with flickering torches on these evenings as well as having a pop-up bar available from 2pm - enabling you to walk around the ancient baths with a glass of prosecco in hand! Located at the end of the magnificent Great Pulteney Street the Holburne Museum displays an interesting collection of art which was bequeathed to the city by a resident of Bath who collected paintings, bronze sculptures, silver and porcelain during the 1800s. The collection has since been added to and this year visitors can enjoy a temporary exhibition by the renowned British artist Grayson Perry.
From the 8th August it will be a legal requirement to wear face-masks inside museums and galleries.
