The first comment is that this museum it is quite hard to find. At the junction of Broad Street, The Paragon, Lansdown Road and George Street, you walk along the raised pavement on the west side of Lansdown Road until you come to an iron gate with "The Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel" written on it. Go through that gate and the museum is in front of you on your left hand side. The staff were very welcoming and suggested that we first view the 10 minute video. They can't have that many visitors since there were only 4 seats for the video. There were many interesting displays in the museum explaining how Bath was built. There were maps, models of houses, videos of stonemasons at work, examples of the tools used, examples of the different styles. There was a large model of Bath with lights to illuminate the different areas with different styles. However, sadly the lights were not working - I'm not sure how long this is out of action for - perhaps we were just unlucky. Nevertheless, this museum is well worth a visit.
