We will be taking the museum back to the 1940s with an evening of music in the museum to accompany our exhibition Repairing War Torn Bath. During the evening which is free admission to all, visitors can also view items from our collections and the Bath Preservation Trust archives which date from the second world war. Archive tours will take place at 8pm, 8.40pm and 9.20pm with places limited to 12 on a first come first served basis.
