Jane Austen Museum in Bath

The Jane Austen Museum in Bath isn’t as well known as Chawton Cottage, but it is near one of the houses Jane’s family inhabited when they lived in Bath.  It does give you a great idea of what Jane’s life in Bath was like and has lots of interesting Jane-related things to view.  Plus their guides are knowledgeable and could talk about Jane Austen forever!  One of the highlights is a waxwork of Jane Austen (based on their research) similar to what you would see in Madame Tussaud’s (is there an Austen statue at Tussaud’s in London?  There should be!). I actually think the statue of Jane looks a little like Mrs. Gardiner in the 1995 production of  Pride and Prejudice.    IMG_1859IMG_1852
