About

The American Museum & Gardens celebrates an epic journey through the diversity of American landscapes, history and culture in a special exhibition for 2024.

People travel in all parts of the globe, but the road trip is an experience forever American. The American Road Trip exhibition presents the origins and stories behind the cultural phenomenon, and transports you thousands of miles on the ultimate journey of discovery along Route 66 and beyond.

Entering an immersive gallery of imagery, music and neon-lighting effects, you can experience a series of interactive spaces to explore different aspects of the iconic adventure.

Exhibition features include billboards showcasing the diverse history and culture of the American road trip, a giant USA map game to play out all kinds of routes across the continent, and favourite examples of the American road trip in popular culture. Visitors will be able to assemble a classic scene for a fun selfie in a theatrical car set, get up close to a 1958 Harley Davidson Duo Glide motorcycle, and navigate the USA via interactive dashboards featuring stunning landscape photography from America’s National Parks and beyond.

Surrounded by inspiring stories, imagery and objects from the road, exhibition road-trippers will be encouraged to add their own American road trip wishes or memories to the displays.

This original exhibition will be on show in Bath at the American Museum & Gardens from 9 March to 31 December 2024.
