Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

The Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water and they're very proud of it, if you don't believe it you can just ask them, as costumed characters representing real historical figures are on hand daily to discuss the Baths with you and the kids!

You can see the famous waters' source and stroll like a Roman on the ancient stone pavements, through the extensive ruins and view treasures from the spring interpreted in modern displays. A pleasing experience for any curious mind but also great when taken more academically as a back up to school work!

Some exhibitions may be accompanied by a children's audio guide tour, which is included with your admission, as are the public guided tours which depart from The Great Bath. Pushchairs have to be left at reception but they will lend you a backpack style baby carrier if you like!

Worth mentioning to the kids that the untreated water in the bath itself must not be touched or consumed: there is treated and drinkable spa water provided in the Pump Room restaurant, free with your ticket! This is the more formal restaurant however, so for dining families will generally prefer the more suitable Roman Baths Kitchen!

Worth noting too that the museum has no parking, apparently there are a couple of local carparks nearby plus a Park and Ride service drop off, plus only about 10 minutes' walk from the train station so make a day of it and ride the rails too?!
