    Outstanding naturalistic garden. It is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont, an avid antiques collector and horticulturist.

    At Henry Francis du Pont's estate, you can see decorative art displayed in the intimate setting of a home, not the sterile environment of a museum. Read more

    Take the tram tour after paying at the visitors center, then make a house tour.

    Gorgeous grounds! Exquisite decor in Winterthur. The Downton Abbey exhibit is a must see. You can skip the lunch at the restaurant...very blah/bland.

    You can definitely spend an entire weekend here - wandering the grounds alone is wonderful. Most definitely a seasonal visit is required!!!

    The Christmas decor is gorgeous. Sometimes the entertainment.com coupon book has a discount coupon. They also have a childrens' garden which I haven't seen yet.

    A great collection by H.F. du Pont with some interesting furniture pieces he accumulated over twenty years. The Downton Abbey exhibit was interesting even though I know nothing about the show.
