The Holburne Museum

The Holburne Museum is Bath's first public art gallery. The Grade I listed building is home to fine and decorative arts built around the collection of Sir William Holburne. With beginnings back in 1793, the museum has grown over the centuries and after a major refurbishment in 2008, it reopened its doors in 2011. Run by a team of staff and volunteers, the space now comprises spaces for temporary exhibitions, collection stores, a teaching space, visitor facilities and a cafe.

Located next to Bath's Sydney Gardens, the Holburne Museum is a ten minute walk from the centre of town; a 15 minute walk from Bath Spa Train Station or a cycle along the canal (there are racks to store your bike). There's a small pay and display car park for museum visitors only, open from 8am–6pm.
