Update from behind the scenes

We have been very busy behind the scenes in the Collections Office at the Roman Baths.

Coin case Kings Bath Corridor

In the past year all the displays along the King’s Bath Corridor have been updated and two new display cases have been installed. With the completion of the King’s Bath Corridor we can now say nearly all of the museum cases have been updated and we have a lot more objects out from store and on display to be enjoyed by everyone.

It has taken the input and cooperation of a lot of different people from designers and contractors, curatorial and collection staff, operations and visitor services as well as mount makers and conservators to make all of this happen. We also have a dedicated team of volunteers who help us choose and research objects selected for display….

Have you been to visit us recently? If not why not put us on your to-do list for this year – you won’t be disappointed and we would love to see you. Why not arrange your visit to coincide with a Behind the Scenes Tour? You will be able to see first-hand the work that goes into presenting a museum and visitor attraction and you will have the chance to get up close and personal with the objects we have in store…
