Bauskas novadpētniecības un mākslas muzejs atrodas pilsētas senākās daļas centrā – Rātslaukumā pie dzīvākās satiksmes maģistrāles – Kalna ielas, kādreizējās viesnīcas "Kurzeme" ēkā

Historical, artistic and other exhibitions are regularly held in the spacious exhibition halls, for example, Tamāra Čudnova’s exhibition of dolls and toys "Playtime". Luxuriously dressed aristocratic salon dolls from the beginning of the century are displayed side by side with dolls of all sizes made from various materials over the course of the century. These are supplemented by miniature pieces of furniture and household items, as well as wooden houses with miniature interiors.

The weavers from the applied arts studio "Bauska" are active at the museum; they provide advice on acquiring and making a folk costume of Zemgale district.
