American Museum in Britain
Established in 1961, the American Museum was the brainchild of two American citizens, Dallas Pratt and John Judkyn. They had the idea of creating a museum in Britain that housed American artefacts, including native American Indian textiles and art. Each of the rooms of the museum are authentically furnished to recreate a different period of American history, from early colonial times through to more modern periods. In addition to the permanent displays that are here there are also temporary exhibitions too. Since the museum is closed during winter each season there is also a new exhibition that lasts throughout the following summer. The museum stands within 120 acres of landscaped gardens and within these gardens there are outdoor exhibitions and displays. The museum is open between mid March and the end of October. It is open between 12 midday and 5pm every day, expect Monday. It is however open on Bank Holiday Mondays and every Monday during August. The admission charges are: Museum, Grounds and Exhibition: Adult - £7.50 (11.25 Euros) Senior Citizens/Students - £6.50 (9.75 Euros) Children (aged 5-16) - £4.00 (6 Euros) Family Ticket (2 adults & 2 children) - £20.00 (30 Euros) Grounds and Exhibition: Adult - £5.00 (7.5 Euros) Seniors/Students - £4.00 (6 Euros) Children (5-16) - £3.00 (4.5 Euros)
Wilton House is the property of the Earl of Pembroke and has been in his family for over 450 years. The house you see today was constructed in 1647 and built in the Palladian style: the Single and Double Cube Rooms are considered to be the finest examples of Palladian architecture in England. Later generations added to the original. A Palladian style bridge over the River Nadder was built in 1737 and cloisters on two levels were added in the 19th century. The house contains a world famous collection of Van Dycks. The interiors are much in demand for film sets and the extensive grounds beside the River Nadder have walks, gardens and water features. An interpretive centre has been created in the Old Riding School where visitors are introduced to the property with an award-winning film. There is an adventure playground for children and special children's activities in school holidays. Facilities are in place for disabled visitors. There is a shop and restaurant on site.
