Concierge.com's insider take:
Eighteen rooms furnished in the manner of the period illustrate how Americans lived from colonial times to the 19th century. A permanent exhibit (opening in spring of 2007) will focus on artifacts of the time, such as war weapons. Claverton Manor is worth a visit in its own right, with gardens modeled on George Washington's at Mount Vernon, and gorgeous views over the Limpley Stoke Valley.
Closed Mondays and October—March. Open daily in August.
