The Holburne Museum specialises in arts and crafts, while the Museum of East Asian Art contains over a thousand artefacts. Both also have temporary exhibitions. Uranus was discovered by telescope from a house in Bath that is now the William Herschel Museum. The Jane Austen Centre is also worth a visit.
