We've visited several times over the years but are always impressed by its contents, the building - including a modern extension - and the setting of park to the rear and Great Pulteney Street in front. The Holburne is open daily and free of charge (except larger special exhibitions). There is adjacent parking, which although payable, is very useful in Bath!
The museum's permament collection includes some wonderful paintings (for example Gainsborough's 'The Baum Family'), silver and other objects. This time, we saw in addition a special exhibition, 'Characters', from the Arts Council collection...interesting, and made more so by a very well-informed gallery guide.
We ate in the restaurant/cafe, part of the rear extension. Food is of good quality, neatly presented, from a limited lunch menu.
