More About The Organisation
The museum shows the different types of work Bath people have done since Roman times.
On the middle floor is the Victorian factory of Mr Bowler. This was a time before plastics when most things were made of metal or wood. The workers were able to make or repair almost anything in metal. They also made fizzy drinks with names like Horehound Beer and Orange Champagne.
Elsewhere, you can see what it was like to work underground mining Bath Stone. We also have a Horstmann car built in Bath in 1914.
There are special events for children throughout the year.
