What people are saying:

The Museum of Bath Architecture does not look like a museum. It is hidden in many houses and shops on the edge of the city. Follow the signs on the roadside, pass the gate, and cross the path to find it. The exhibition hall is just a hall, separated by rows of cabinets with exhibits and introductions. In fact, it is not really a museum. This was originally a church built for Mrs. Huntingdon in 1765, but it was changed to the Bath Museum of Architecture in 1992. Tickets for the Architecture Museum are 6.5 pounds and students 5.5 pounds. There are not many visitors and it is extremely quiet. The hall with collections, purchases, or donations does not feel empty. Following these showcases and exhibits, we can piece together the formation, development and preservation of the small city of Bath. The most impressive thing is the information and exhibits about John Wood and his son. The architect John Wood and his son were the main planners of Bath City. The introduction of the Jane Austen Center used such a sentence to describe the old John Wood-"The pioneer who brought Bath from being an insignificant little town into the mainstream of European architecture." There is no doubt that John Wood and his son have an opinion on Bath and British architecture. The influence of history is profound and far-reaching. The elder John Wood planned the overall style of Bath, designed Queen Square, The Circus and many other buildings. His son John Wood, younger, inherited his father’s will and finally completed the circle. Shaped square, designed Bath Assembly Rooms (Bath Assembly Rooms), the famous Royal Crescent (The Royal Crescent) and so on. The Georgian-style circular square is inspired by the Colosseum. 33 houses form a ring and are divided into three equal lengths, ensuring that everyone who enters the square can see a building facade at a glance. Overlooking Bath, you will find the Circus, Queen's Square and the Gay Street between the two constitute the symbol of Freemasonry-the shape of a key. The Royal Crescent is composed of 30 townhouses with a total of 114 columns forming a crescent shape at a 30-degree angle. Brock Street connects the circular square symbolizing the sun with the Royal Crescent symbolizing the moon. This Palladian style has had an important influence on many cities in the UK, such as London, Edinburgh, and Bristol. The museum displays old John wood's manuscripts, books, drawing tools, etc. In addition, the museum has landscape maps of Bath drawn from different eras. Through the paintings, you can see the changes in Bath over the centuries.
