- Opened in 1900, the upper floor of this Victorian gallery's permanent exhibition space holds paintings from the early 17th century up to modern times - including works from some of Bath's best known artists such as Thomas Barker - as well as a collection of porcelain, glass, and miniature decorative art. The lower floor, once the Bath library, now houses six-week exhibitions with wide ranging themes and appeal. A small exhibition room, library, and the Guildhall's Georgian rooms next door, complete the complex. Events and lectures are regular features, and activities for the visually impaired and children are available. A small bookshop offers a wide selection of cards and gifts; coffee and tea are also available.
