Twas the night before a very colourful Christmas at The American Museum & Gardens
Tel: +44 (0)1225 460503
Old meets new at Claverton’s VERY colourful Christmas.
Inspired by its love of colour, pattern, texture and the magical poem by US writer Clement Clarke Moore, ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, the American Museum & Gardens have created the South West’s most colourful and family friendly Christmas.
In collaboration with illustrator Joe Watson, the young and young at heart will have the chance to relive that unexpected encounter as they wander through that magical night.
The colour continues in the Museums main collection in Claverton Manor too, where visitors will discover life from historical winters past.
When visitors need a break from the glorious glow, they can relax with scrummy festive treats, including Ginger Bread, in the Orangery Café, and a spot of retail therapy in one of the Museum’s unique shops which are open everyday.
