American Museum Garden, Bath
At the American museum there is a garden which is based on the Mount Vernon Garden at George Washington's home.
The American Museum & Gardens in Bath underwent major works in 2018 to transform it into one of the finest gardens in the South of England.
Opened by Alan Titchmarsh, the New American Garden was designed by Washington DC based firm Oehme, van Sweden and was their first UK commission.
There are many new features including a natural amphitheatre, extensive borders full of colour and a wheelchair friendly encircling the lawns.
The Museum's gardens also feature a reproduction of George Washington's upper garden as it would have appeared on his Mount Vernon estate in Virginia in 1799. Our Mount Vernon garden features ornamental planting, fruit and vegetables, and boxwood hedges in the shape of four fleur de lis which symbolize the friendship between America's first president and the Marquis de Lafayette.
American Museum and Gardens welcomes you back. Opening times 2021
