The American Museum in Bath

If you are an American reader of this blog, I hope you had a wonderful 4th July.

On Saturday, we went to the American Museum in Bath. It is a great museum to visit if you come to the South West of England.

As part of the 4th July week-end, they hosted on the ground a mini re-enactment with a squadron of British soldiers.

We wanted to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition (but you will have to wait for another post on this). As a preview, here are a few pictures of knitted decorations outside the house.

The George Washington's garden was in full glory. The plaque indicates that this garden is a reproduction of Washington's garden was reproduced from his home in Mount Vermont, Virginia.

The collection of the museum is mainly pieces of furniture and objects throughout the history of America. They have a significant collection of historical quilts. There are a few interesting work of art.
