The Museum of Bath at Work showcases the commercial development of Bath over the last 2000 years, from the time of the Roman Baths when the city was known for its spas. The centrepiece of the museum is the reconstructed engineering and soft drinks factory of Victorian entrepreneur J. B. Bowler. Other reconstructions at the museum are a Bath Stone quarry face complete with crane and tools, a cabinet maker's workshop, and ironmonger's shop. Items on display include a rare 1914 Horstmann car, the only extant example of a horizontal 6-stroke double acting Griffin-cycle gas engine, and an 1851 Bath Chair.
