American Museum in Britain

View the days out leaflet for American Museum in Britain

The American Museum in Britain takes you on a journey through the history of America, from its early settlers to the 20th century; and illustrates the complexity of American culture through its remarkable collections of folk and decorative arts. Its furniture, paintings, maps, quilts, silver, and glass are presented in a series of authentic period rooms. The museum has the finest collection of Americana outside the United States.

The American Museum in Britain is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The hilltop site of the museum's home, Claverton Manor near Bath takes full advantage of the spectacular views over the valley of the River Avon. The grounds total some 120 acres, of which forty are open to visitors. The Cafe offers home-cooked light lunches (12–2pm). Tea, coffee, cakes, and American cookies are available all day. There are also 3 shops selling a range of gifts and souvenirs.
