In the May 2015 issue of Astronomy, Ralph Wilkins wrote an excellent account of his visit to the Herschel Museum in Bath, England. This was the former home of astronomer William Herschel, who, at this very house, found the seventh planet in our solar system, Uranus.

Because space was limited, we could not present more than 10 images from the museum. So, here are 10 more for you to enjoy. Hopefully, someday soon you, too, will be able to travel to see this revered spot of astronomy’s history.
