When William Herschel first came to Bath it was music, not astronomy that brought him to the city, accompanied by his brothers and sister Caroline.
Displays, activities and events at the Museum this year reveal how through composing, performing and teaching, the Herschels were at the heart of music in 18th century Bath.
Free with normal admission to the museum
