The American Museum & Gardens, at Claverton on the outskirts of Bath, is launching an immersive Christmas experience on 22nd November, in conjunction with the Natural Theatre Company.
The museum will be working with The Natural Theatre Company to be bring three special characters to their period rooms.
The period rooms will be decorated to reflect the changing times and how early America kept family and friends cosy in the winter months.
The museum will also be hosting a 17-foot Christmas tree, believed to be Bath’s tallest indoor specimen.
Assistant Curator, Steph Forbes said: “Visitors will be able to step back to days gone by and experience winter life in America.
“Fun and frivolity in Conkey’s Tavern, hunkering down against a winter chill in the house of the Lee family, and party preparations in old New Orleans await all intrepid time travellers this festive season.
“I’m pleased to say that, back by popular demand, visitors will be able to sample some of the Conkey’s famous gingerbread.”
For the first time ever, the gardens will remain open during the Christmas season. The American Museum has recently opened a £2-million pound ‘New American Garden’.
The New American Garden is the first European commission for Washington DC-based landscape architects Oehme, van Sweden (OvS).
Head of Visitor Experience, Jon Ducker said: “When you’ve wandered through the ages you can spend more time relaxing in our café or at one of our keeping cosy inspired events.
“If you’d like to spend a little time outside, for the first time ever at the American Museum our transformed gardens will be open for exploring. Remember to bring your four legged friend too.”
‘Tis the season – Keep cosy this Christmas’ runs from 22nd November – 16th December. For more information, visit: https://americanmuseum.org.
