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.
