you wouldn't think this was worth anything from me outside, it is an ordinary door you go through. You pay a magnificent sum of one pound or two pounds and up you go.
This area got its wealth from the quality of water so do try whatever else you do get a drink of this before you leave the town. There are actual fountains in the street where you can help yourself to this gloriously pure water.
Wealthy and notable people visited this place for water treatment. People used to be wrapped in towels and all that dirt came off thus purifying the body. Success was not difficult to achieve because people did not wash from one end of the year to the next and thus arrived caked in dirt. There are four rooms upstairs plus a corridor and I challenge anyone not to be interested in the content.
With the admission fee comes a free audio commentary which is most instructive.
If you have the slightest interest in history this is the place to go. I can't say that the attention span of children would be that great.
PS This museum is run by volunteers.
