Gift Aid

The above entry prices exclude any Gift Aid donation. However, The American Museum in Britain is a registered charity and therefore offers a choice of two entry tickets under the Gift Aid scheme. The Gift Aid admission includes a voluntary donation. Gift Aid admissions enable the American Museum in Britain to reclaim tax you have paid to the government. This can significantly help the charity further its conservation, restoration and educational work. (For every £1.00 given to the Museum, an extra 25p is given by the Inland Revenue.)

For Gift Aid entry prices, please check the Museum's website, via the web link opposite.


Situated within 120 acres of wonderful grounds and stunning scenery, the American Museum in Britain is home to the finest collection of Americana outside of the United States.

The interactive American Heritage Exhibition precedes a series of attractive period rooms dating from colonial times until the eve of the Civil War.

Has special annual exhibition (March-Oct) with an exciting calendar of events, plus festive Christmas displays to end the year (Nov-Dec).
