Christmas 2017 ‘A Little Party Never Hurt Nobody’ A Jazz Age-inspired Christmas at the American Museum


Get a wiggle on to the American Museum in Britain this winter for a party like no other. Party through the ages in our period rooms and discover what Americans did to let their hair down in days gone by.

The jewel in the crown is the dazzling Central Hall Christmas tree, bedecked in decadent decorations, glorious glitz, and Gatsbyesque glamour of the 1920’s. Whether you’re a dancing dame or a fancy fella, our Jazz Age inspired Christmas is set to be the swankiest soirée in town!

In a 17th century home in Massachusetts, the family is giving thanks for the bounteous harvest provided by the New England autumn, and sharing an abundant feast together with their friends and neighbors.

In December 1800, a young lady has just returned home from the excitement of the first White House Christmas party, held in honor of the Granddaughter of President Adams.

In New York 1835, the young ladies of the family have decided to give an impromptu concert to entertain their friends and family at a party on the eve of the New Year.

Amid the celebrations, fabulous flapper rag-dolls handcrafted by the Museum’s fantastic volunteers, will be daringly dancing through each room – can you spot them all?
