Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25%

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.)

    This is a great place to visit. Not too far from Bath. The main house has a variety of rooms from different parts of American history. There was an interesting display on the First World War Read full review
