We are closed for the rest of the winter season, and will open again on 9 March with our new special exhibition and an exciting programme of events. Come back soon to see our beautiful spring gardens and inspiring museum collections, and to attend seasonal trails, outdoor theatre, music, talks and much more.

US Friends of the American Museum & Gardens

The US Friends of the American Museum & Gardens aims to raise awareness of the Museum’s work, furthers cross-cultural exchange between the UK and the USA which is at the heart of our mission, and plays a key role in providing essential financial support for the Museum.

Find out how to become a US friend.

In addition to support from the US Friends, American and British colleagues working and volunteering at the American Museum & Gardens in Bath are further supported by the New York City based Halcyon Foundation and a US council.

The Halcyon Foundation was established by the Museum’s founders Dr Dallas Pratt to provide on-going financial support to the Museum. A Halcyon Board, based in New York, liaises with the Museum and helps ensure its future sustainability.
