Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) is a magnificent 175-room house, once the home of the du Pont family. Winterthur is the premier museum of American decorative arts, reflecting both early America and the du Pont family’s life here. Within the nearly 1,000 acre estate is a 60-acre naturalistic garden that is considered among the country’s best, and the house contains nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America from 1640 to 1860.
A special exhibition, The Costumes of Downton Abbey, will be available to PWP members at no additional cost.
This PWP trip - open to members and non-members - will depart by bus from East 86th Street at 8:00 AM, and return at approximately 6:00 PM.
