‘Tis the season – Keep cosy this Christmas

22 November – 16 December 

Step back to days gone by and experience winter life in America for three very special characters. Fun and frivolity in Conkey’s Tavern, hunkering down against a winter chill in the house of the Lee family, and party preparations in old New Orleans await all intrepid time travellers this festive season.

You’ll also discover our period rooms decorated to reflect the changing times and how early America kept family and friends cosy in the winter months and with Bath’s tallest indoor Christmas tree, a chance to gather your own loved ones close to make a wish this Christmas.

When you’ve wandered through the ages you can spend more time relaxing in our café or at one of our keeping cosy inspired events.

If you’d like to spend a little time outside, for the first time ever at the American Museum our transformed gardens will be open for exploring. Remember to bring your four legged friend too.
