Holburne Museum of Art

Bath's Holburne Museum of Art is located in a fine historic building that was once the Sydney Hotel. In 1916 it became home to the superb collection of art of Sir William Holburne.

Holburne's collection is best known for its silver and Old Masters, including pieces by Gainsborough and Turner, but there are also a substantial number of Italian bronzes, maiolica, porcelain, glass, furniture and portrait miniatures.

Parts of the collection also have connections with the city, including Angelica Kauffmann's portrait of Henrietta Laura Pulteney, Hone's miniature of Beau Nash, the city's famous Master of Ceremonies, and Joseph Plura's masterpiece Diana and Endymion, made in Bath in 1752.

The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions and events throughout the year.
