About this course

The Museum of Bath at Work aims both to complement and act as a counterpoint to the many heritage attractions of the city, charting Bath’s fascinating commercial and industrial history, its development as a manufacturing centre as well as a tourist destination. Permanent collections include the contents of a local engineering firm, a hardware shop, a Victorian soft drinks factory, and Bath Stone mine. The museum also has a lively educational programme for schools and colleges, presenting regular lectures, day schools and workshops. Besides general experience of a heritage attraction, including exhibition preparation, liaison with schools, archival research etc. the placement offers the chance to work on 'behind the scenes' collections management projects.
