TIL that Mary Shelley actually wrote her groundbreaking novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus while she was living in Bath, England. I also discovered that the new Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein, opened in Bath last week. The multimedia museum commemorates Shelley’s life and work over 205 years since she penned the now iconic book.
The new attraction tells the story behind the genesis of Frankenstein. Blurring the lines between museum and immersive experience, the museum celebrates the legacy of Shelley’s work across four atmospheric floors exploring the tragic life events and radical scientific thinking that inspired her imagination.
Bath’s newest museum covers all things Frankenstein from literature and pop culture, including movie memorabilia, artwork, books, and bizarre collectibles. There’s even a spookie basement multi-sensory experience.
