The American Museum takes you on a journey through the history of America, from its early settlers to the twentieth century. With its remarkable collection of folk and decorative arts, the Museum shows the diverse and complex nature of American traditions. The only museum of Americana outside the United States, it was founded to bring American history and cultures to the people of Britain and Europe.

The permanent collection includes more than two hundred historic American quilts, exceptional pieces of Shaker furniture, Native American objects, and two hundred historical maps of the New World starting from the twelfth century and stretching through the Renaissance. The museum also has the most significant collection of American folk art in Europe.  Visitors can also explore the extensive grounds, which include an arboretum of American trees.

This immersive exhibition will explore life back home, recruitment, training, a Red Cross hospital, and a reconstructed Renault tank used by the Americans on the Western Front.

Your journey will introduce you to some of those who served on the home front, and to those who saw active service, including Ernest Hemingway, President Woodrow Wilson, journalist Alice Rohe Gertrude, Red Cross worker Charlotte Bannon and one of the 16 million animals who served.
