  • This is a real gem in Bath. Excellent displays of beautiful ceramics. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I was shocked and horrified to hear they'd suffered a break-in and a number of irreplaceable pieces were stolen. More people need to visit to help raise funds.
  • It is such a shame that they had to close the first floor due to major damage done by intruders. The collection feels definitely smaller because of it but it is not the museum’s fault at all. It is probably the cheapest museum in Bath so I would say definitely go take a look and help them get back on their feet!
