Herschel Museum of Astronomy
Herschel Museum of Astronomy Review
In this modest Bath town house, using a handmade telescope of his own devising, William Herschel (1738–1822) identified the planet Uranus. This small museum devoted to his studies and discoveries contains his telescopes, the workshop where he cast his speculum metal mirrors, musical instruments of his time (Herschel was the organist at Bath's Octagon Chapel), and the tiny garden where he made his discovery.
