There are many better-known museums in Bath and this one is very slightly off the beaten track, but is well worth a quick detour en-route to the Assembly rooms, the Circus and the Royal Crescent. Housed in the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel, a wonderful building in it's own right, this collection will tell you everything you could possibly need to know about the architecture of Bath. There are great maps, aerial photographs and models of the city at different times and lots of information about the construction of the buildings and the skills, crafts, tools and materials whch were used.
The museum is usually staffed by friendly and well-informed volunteers, but you may be lucky enough to find one of the incredibly knowlegeable and helpful curators to give you a tour! A great starting place for your visit if you are interested in the architecture and history of Bath- you will view the city through different eyes afterwards!
