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.
With its remarkable collection of folk and decorative arts, the museum shows the diverse and complex nature of American culture.
The only museum of Americana outside the United States, the museum was founded to bring American history and cultures to the people of Britain and Europe.
The museum's collection of furniture, paintings, quilts, silver and glass is presented in a series of period rooms within the historic Claverton Manor. Our textile and map collections are also on show in the Textile Room and Map Room.
In the basement is the permanent American Heritage Exhibition, which tells the stories of the Founding Fathers, Native Americans and the Civil War, through a series of interactive galleries that bring the development of America and American culture to life with bright and tactile exhibits - great for kids of all ages!
Throughout the season there is a range of exciting events planned, including traditional American music concerts, Kids' activities and Living History Events.
The museum is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with spectacular views over the valley of the River Avon. The grounds total some 120 acres, of which forty are open to visitors.
