Description

Framed by grassy lawn and lofty, leaf-frocked trees, the elegant former home of Henry Francis du Pont, an American horticulturist with a penchant for collecting antiques, paints a grand picture. Designed in the style of a European estate, the house and carefully tended gardens offer a genteel glimpse of both the du Pont famiy and Henry F du Pont's expansive antique collection. Explore the house further on a guided tour and get an up-close look at antique furniture in "Period Rooms" and assorted objects in the museum galleries, which showcase a selection of the over 85,000 items that are part of Winterthur's permanent holdings. Let the young members of your party frolick a bit in the Enchanted Woods, a three-acre children's garden that is part of Winterthur Garden, before calling it a day in the country.
