About the Museum

Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur is the premier museum of American decorative arts, reflecting both early America and the du Pont family’s life at this glorious estate. Special exhibitions in the Winterthur galleries complement the magnificence of the 175-room mansion filled with extraordinary period pieces. The 60-acre garden is also world-renowned and, for families, there is Winterthur’s award-winning Enchanted Woods to explore. Additionally, its spectacular annual events draw thousands of visitors; these include the Point-to-Point steeplechase race, the Delaware Antiques Show and the Yuletide tour of the du Pont house bedecked in holiday finery.
