House of Frankenstein

37 Gay Street, Bath, BA1 2NT. England

Subjects

Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein is an award-winning immersive museum in the centre of Bath. It tells the compelling story of how Mary, as a Regency teenager, was inspired to write the world’s most famous horror story, Frankenstein, and explores the legacy of her incredible creation.

Extending over four floors, students will explore an atmospherically decorated Georgian townhouse featuring themed rooms, bespoke soundscapes, special effects, and evocative aromas to provide an entertaining and informative journey through Shelley’s complex life.

The House also offers two escape rooms, a screening room featuring the world’s first Frankenstein silent movie from 1910 (12 minutes long), and an optional horror walk-through experience in the basement.
