Victoria Art Gallery in Bath

The Victoria Art Gallery is free public art museum in Bath. The museum is housed in a building designed in 1897 by John McKean Brydon which is a Grade II listed building. On the exterior of the building, there is a statue of Queen Victoria by A. C. Lucchesi.

The Gallery commemorates Queen Victoria's sixty years on the throne. The Victoria Art Gallery is run by the Bath and North East Somerset council and displays their collection of sculpture, paintings and other art forms.


The Victoria Art Gallery in Bath exhibits over 1,500 decorative arts treasures including British oil paintings from the 17th century to today. The exhibit includes works by Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Jones Barker and Walter Sickert.


The displays at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath occupy two floors. The permanent collection is housed in two rooms on the first floor, and the ground floor accomodates two temporary exhibition spaces which change every 2-3 months.


The Victoria Art Gallery is located in the centre of Bath, just across the street from the well-known Pulteney Bridge which spans the River Avon. Visitors to the Victoria Art Gallery may also want to linger in the nearby Podium shopping centre.
