Tuesday May 21, 2019 — “Welcome to Winterthur” Bus Trip
We would love to have you join us on our annual bus trip. This year, we will travel to Winterthur.
Here we’ll sample the museum’s magnificent collection of American decorative arts as we tour the house and exhibition galleries, as well as enjoy the glorious 60-acre garden and surrounding woodlands and meadows.
About 60 years ago Henry Frances DuPont, collector and horticulturist, opened his childhood home to the public. The magnificent 175-room house displays his collection of unparalleled objects made or used in America from 1640-1860. The galleries include permanent and changing exhibits. A new temporary exhibit, Costuming THE CROWN, is planned to feature 40 iconic costumes from the popular Netflix series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
The tram tour of the gardens starts at 10:45 am. The guided house tour runs from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. Then we can buy our lunch in their cafeteria and tour the exhibition galleries.
