    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.

    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!!!

    If you plan on visiting as a family more than once a year, get the family membership, it has some nice perks!

    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.

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