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, 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.
With the launch of the transformed Mount Vernon and new New American Garden, we’ve taken the decision to change our name to better reflect who we are and what our visitors can experience.
We’re now the American Museum & Gardens. More information here: New name, new gardens, new discoveries
