American Museum in Britain


Experience an adventure through America's past and learn about the facts and secrets of its history. Not only is it a fun educational institute, but it is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Set on 125 acres of grounds, the views from here are magical. All of the American traditions are highlighted and explained here. It will take no time for visitors to realise how diverse they have been throughout the years. The collection of decorative arts and folk is tremendous. Can you believe that out of the United States, it is the only American museum of its sort. The yearly temporary exhibitions are pretty great too and you can see them in the Exhibition gallery. There are a fantastic variety of events spread out throughout the year. From traditional American music concerts, to re-enactments and all kinds of activity days, there is something for everyone. *


The American Museum in Britain was one of those attractions that took me totally by surprise. Being a huge fan of the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh, Northern Ireland, I was thinking that I had seen it all. The American Museum in Britain really is one of Baths hidden gems when it comes to tourist attractions. Taking you perfectly through the history of America, the museum has an amazing collection of textiles that really did play a huge part in America in those early years of settlement. Founded in the early sixties by two very experienced antique collectors, the museum has grown from strength to strength. With so many things to see, you could either spend a few hours here or maybe even make it a full day especially if your planning on having lunch on the lawn. A true Top 100 Attraction is what you'll find here!
