Welcome to Bath’s local history museum
Celebrating 40 years (1978-2018)
The Museum of Bath at Work – or the Camden Works Museum as it was known then – opened in 1978 and this Autumn the Museum will mark the 40th anniversary, with celebrations in September.
A number of personalities who were involved in the early days will be interviewed as part of a new oral history project and an exhibition celebrating the work of the Museum will be on display. We will circulate more detailed plans in the coming months.
The Museum of Bath at Work, located in Bath, United Kingdom, is the city’s local history museum telling the tale of 2000 years of the city’s development. It features displays on Bath Stone, Bath Chairs and Bath Buns, trains, trams and tourism and all other ways in which Bathonians have earned a living since Roman times.
Exhibitions include a complete reconstruction of a Victorian engineering and soft drinks making factory, an Edwardian ironmongers, a cabinet maker’s workshop, a Bath Stone mine and the famous Horstmann car of 1914. A lively programme of temporary exhibitions, events and activities for runs throughout the year!
