American Museum in Britaiin
The American Museum takes you on a journey through the history of America, from its early settlers to the twentieth century. With its remarkable collection of folk and decorative arts (including over 200 quilts), the Museum shows the diverse and complex nature of American traditions. The only museum of Americana outside the United States, it was founded to bring American history and cultures to the people of Britain and Europe.

Lunch is not included in the price but we will have a reserved area where we can eat together after the private tour. Numbers are limited, so act now (see below) to avoid disappointment.
