Very disappointed. We paid £9 entry at 3.45. At 4.15 we were told they were closing in 15 mins and to walk faster through the displays. At 4.30 we were told to leave as it was closing. We were then told the shop would be open until 4.45, when we got there we were told it was about to close.... More

This is a place to visit, irrespective of an interest in fashion. The audio commentary is excellent. However, more places to sit whilst enjoying this attraction would be advantageous.

It's not a huge place,but well,well worth a visit. My daughter loved the dressing up area,where you can try on examples of period costume. Above the museum are the assembly rooms which are stunning,the chandeliers are... More

Bought an extended ticket having been to No 1 The Crescent. Interesting to see how clothing evolved. Phone type gadgets are provided to listen to specific details which means you can wander at your own pace. Fun dressing up area.

If you have any interest in history, period gowns, or fashion of any sort, this is an excellent museum to visit. Really well put together.

Good well organised museum with well lit and well designed exhibits. Good dressing up for the kids and places to sit and enjoy the experience Staff a little over zealous in ticket collecting and no concessions for blue peter badge holders!

We found out about the museum by chance when researching what was in Bath. We brought a combined ticket with No 1 Royal Crescent. Interesting to see how the fashions from the late 1700 change to the 1980's. The availability of different materials and touched on changes to how the fabrics were produced and ways of ensuring the dress had... More

Although I am of the male species I enjoyed going to the fashion museum. The content is great and the display is eye catching. They have it set out in periods and there is a place where you can dress up and take pictures against a period Bath Street scene,
