A touch of glass for Bath museum

The Holburne Museum’s newly-opened glass extension.

The Holburne Museum’s newly-opened glass extension.

BATH’s Holburne Museum, home to the 19th century art collection of Sir Thomas William Holburne, has re-opened following a £11.2 million restoration.

Set within the park of Sydney Gardens, a new glass extension offers more space for the museum’s growing collection and temporary exhibitions, allowing 60% more of the permanent collection to be on show at any given time. The use of glass and ceramic is also intended to unite the building more closely with the surrounding parkland.
The opening exhibition, ‘Peter Blake: A Museum for Myself’ will remain on show until the beginning of September.
Entry to the museum is free. There is a charge for temporary exhibitions, but special rates are available for groups of 10 or more.
