Situated just 7 miles from the INN at Wilmington, Winterthur is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont. Set on 1,000 acres, this sprawling estate offers a wide array of interesting things for you to see and do. The museum features an impressive collection of 90,000 American decorative arts objects from 1640 through 1860. There's also a garden blooming with colorful flowers and plants throughout the year.

  • How long should I expect to stay at Winterthur?

    You can spend as little or as much time as you like. A two-hour visit includes a garden tram ride with narration along with a basic tour of the 175-room mansion. If you opt for the four-hour visit, you can add in special exhibitions, an orientation film, and more time to explore the garden on foot. An all-day visit features a reserved tour, garden walk, and estate hike through beautiful meadows.
  • Are there any kid-friendly options?

    There most certainly are. You and your young ones can check out Enchanted Woods, a fascinating children’s garden. The Once Upon A Family Tour is a great way to get an easy-to-understand overview. And you’ll also have access to hands-on activities in the Galleries, history-related games in the Touch-It Room, and a whole host of family programs.
