The Museum of Bath Architecture collection includes maps, models, designs, drawings, videos, paintings and tools tell the story of how eighteenth century architects and craftsmen helped turn a small medieval walled town into the destination of choice for Georgian high society.
Celebrating the distinctive Georgian architecture that makes Bath so special, and which has contributed to it becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site city, highlights of the collection include a 1:500 scale model of Bath, giving a miniature birds-eye-view of the whole city.
