The American Museum in Britain

The American Museum in Britain is the only museum of Americana outside the United States. The museum was founded to bring American culture and history to the people of Britain and Europe. The American Museum in Britain showcases paintings, furniture, quilts, silver and glass displayed in a series of period rooms. Helpful museum assistants in each of these rooms provide insights into the collection.
