The Fashion Museum and Assembly Rooms

The Fashion Museum
The story of fashion over the last 400 years is brought alive at the Fashion Museum, the finest museum of fashionable garments in the world. The displays include 200 dressed figures to illustrate the changing styles in fashionable clothes from the late 16th century to the present day, chosen from the museum's collection of 30,000 original items.

The galleries display a series of themes including menswear and womenswear, dress for day and dress for evening, as well as alternative fashion and fashion today. The museum also stages regular temporary exhibitions, and facilities include a cafe, book shop and gift shop.
 
The Assembly Rooms 
Bath's magnificent 18th century Assembly Rooms were opened in 1771. Known as the New or Upper Rooms, to distinguish them from the older Assembly Rooms in the lower part of the town, they were designed by John Wood the Younger.

This fine set of public rooms was purpose-built for an 18th century form of entertainment called an 'assembly'. A large number of guests met together to dance, drink tea, play cards and listen to music - or just walk about, talk and flirt.

There are four rooms: the Ball Room, the Tea Room (also known as the Concert Room), and the Octagon and Card Room.
