The American Museum, Bath

Housed in Claverton Manor on the outskirts of the Georgian city of Bath, the American Museum in Britain opened to the public in July 1961 with the intention of fostering historic ties between the United States and the United Kingdom.  The American Museum is celebrated for its magnificent decorative arts collection – over 200 historic American quilts, exceptional pieces of Shaker furniture, exuberant folk art paintings and sculptures, Native American objects, and Renaissance maps of the New World.

There is something for everyone to enjoy at the American Museum, the only Museum of Americana outside the United States:  American music concerts, craft activities for children, seminars of American literature and film, as well as family-friendly Living History weekends.  Visitors are also welcome to wander through the extensive grounds, including an Arboretum of American trees.  We also have a café with beautiful countryside views and three shops.

Castles

Castles were first built in England during the Norman Conquest in the 11th century as fortifications. There are many hundreds of castles throughout England some in good repair whilst others have all but completely disappeared other than a few stones to mark the spot.
