Very interesting to visit with knowledgable and informative staff in every room. The Portrait of a Woman exhibition made it especially interesting. But best of all the lady in the Lady's Bedroom gave a great account of the life and times of people in Batg

If you are in Bath you have to see Royal Crescent, and that means you almost certainly need to see this museum. It is essentially a reproduction of what the interior of the house would have been like during the time of its first tenant. It is interesting, but it was a bit odd to have a guide waiting in each room to tell you about what was in the room - it meant you couldn't go at your own pace.

I'm always fascinated by the beautiful period architecture in places like Bath, Edinburgh and Cheltenham and wonder what it would have been like to live their when it was first build. This museum gave a good flavour of that life. Every room had a guide who was available to answer questions, and the guide in the ladies bedroom (Glenys?) was my absolute favourite. Her knowledge of Georgian fashion was second to none.

Personally I would have preferred to have the option of a guided tour rather than just having the guides in each room, as I never know what questions to ask.

We took the offer of a combined ticket allowing us to do both the No. 1 Royal Crescent and the Buildings of Bath museum (£10.50 for both attractions), which made a very pleasant way to spend a rainy day in Bath!

Great place to visit if you like history and houses, loved the really authentic kitchen which you can freely wander around.

The Royal Crescent is a beautiful site and the museum affords the opportunity to see inside the buildings and experience what it was like to live in one. The rooms are well furnished to the period and there were costumed guides in each room to explain the space and answer questions. The kitchens and pantry area were our favorite rooms.
