One of the country's great small museums, The Holburne houses a wonderfully rich collection of paintings, silver, sculpture, furniture and porcelain, with important works by Gainsborough, Guardi, Stubbs and Turner. Housed in the eighteenth-century Sydney Hotel and set within the park of Sydney Gardens, it is Bath's most beautiful museum.
Education is at the heart of the Holburne. We offer a wide range of learning experiences, from formal programmes for schools to free choice family activities and adult learning including a variety of lectures, day-schools and practical workshops.
We take an active part in the community through outreach, and are committed to offering an inspiring and innovative programme for people of all ages and abilities.
