An Immersive Multi-sensory Museum

Very few know that In 1816, Mary Shelley wrote much of the world’s first science fiction novel, Frankenstein, while living in Bath.

Extending over four atmospheric floors, Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein is an award winning, multi-sensory visitor attraction where visitors will be immersed in Shelley’s unconventional tragic life and the lasting legacy of her infamous creation.

Bursting with unusual artefacts, ominous soundtracks, bespoke smells and special effects, we also present an 8ft animatronic breathing creature, authentically reproduced for the first time exactly as Mary Shelley described.

Our House also features two rooms dedicated to popular culture, an intimate screening room, a Frankenstein-themed Escape Room and, for the braver visitor, a thrilling horror walkthrough experience in the basement.
