Young or old, history buff or not, this site is not to be missed. Everyone will find something that interests them. We went mid-afternoon on a Sunday in early May and it was not very crowded, so we enjoyed an relaxed, unhurried visit. (The line to get in moves quickly - don't let it deter you.) The audio tour is definitely worth having, lots of information given. The museum is very good, too. The day we went, there were a few period actors chatting with the visitors which we thought added a nice personal dimension to what otherwise might be another old building. Plan to spend at least a couple of fascinating hours.

We visited Bath with the main aim of visiting this museum. The experience was good and there are many displays and multimedia ways of enhancing the experience. The baths themselves are lovely, and the re-enactors/historical interpreters aid in the experience.

The only downside is the steps. While the museum does have some lifts, there remain areas where steps still need to be negotiated. While I am sure for those physically capable of "doing it all" will find it good value for money, for those with mobility issues or other access issues the price is a little dear for what you can easily see. Perhaps a disabled fare might be considered, and if one does already exist, the staff could make it clearer.

Initially, this was just another place to visit on our driving tour of England. However, this turned out to be the highlight of the trip (plus St Ives in Cornwall). Audio system was very informative on all aspects of the bath. Learned a lot on Roman culture and history. Tour allowed you to touch the stones and see the pools that were once occupied by the Romans. Very informative and well worth the time and effort.

Amazing and so expansive - a building feat by any standards. It really did take a couple of hours to walk around and was definitely worth the entrance fee.

we went to Bath for the week end with our family (4adults 5 kids) and visited the Roman Bath. this is an excellent family activity, the tour is really nicely structured, with explanations for adults and for kids. the visit takes 90min and is getting the kids interested during all the time.

we learnt a lot during the visit and felt good after the visit
