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.

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.
