Our future

The Fashion Museum will be moving to a new home…

Following a wonderful 60 years at the Assembly Rooms, the Fashion Museum Collection will vacate the Assembly Rooms in 2022/23 and move to a new home.

The Council is now looking for a new home for the Fashion Museum in Bath and is currently considering several possible locations. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for the latest information on our move and the announcement of our future location.

It is likely that the museum will need to close for a while before moving into our new location, however we do not yet know how long the closure will be for; but don’t worry, while we are closed we’ll be bringing you an exciting array of digital content to keep you up to date with all our activities and our world class collection. 

The Assembly Rooms is owned by the National Trust, who will take on the care and management of the Assembly Rooms going forward.

You can be a part of the Fashion Museum’s exciting future. While we are not seeking volunteers to help onsite, if you are in a position to give a significant gift to kick-start this campaign and leverage in support from individuals and organisations, please contact Rebecca Gibson for a conversation.
