Museum of Bath at Work

Local nameMuseum of Bath at Work
LocationBath, Somerset, United Kingdom

The Museum of Bath at Work is a local history museum in Bath, Somerset, England.

The museum was established in 1978 as the Bath Industrial Heritage Trust. Its original collection consisted of a reconstruction of the nineteenth century engineering and mineral water business of Jonathan Burdett Bowler, founded in 1872. When the Bowler firm closed in 1969 its contents were bought by a local businessman with the express intention of founding a museum. Photographs taken of the original business were used to carefully reconstruct the shop, workshops, offices and bottling plant. Over 10,000 bottles and many thousands of documents were also saved.

Today, the museum seeks to present the commercial development of Bath over a 2000-year period. In addition to the Bowler collection, other reconstructions include a cabinet maker's workshop and a Bath Stone quarry face complete with crane and tools.
