Festive season closure – Friday 22 December 2023 to Tuesday 16 January 2024.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Museum as an independent, educational charity, and the passing of our founder Brian Shane McElney OBE (1932 – 2023).
The Museum was at the heart of Brian’s life in Bath and this year, in particular, we celebrate Brian’s vision and honour his legacy. Brian was equally as passionate about collecting exquisite objects as he was about sharing his knowledge and stories with others. Please consider making a donation to the Museum to help us ensure that his legacy lives on.
