Winterthur is always interesting. The gardens are spectacular in every season. The exhibits are very good. The special exhibit of costumes from "The Crown " was very well put together and the presentation was excellent. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic.
This was a great place to go for a family day trip. Only an hour and a half drive and we spent many hours there without getting bored. Lots of early american history. Gorgeous grounds.
We did the walk in the gardens and the guided tour of the house. Well worth the time. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history of the mansion and property.
Greeted immediately upon entering the visitors centre with a smile, the grounds are well kept, the tram talk was wonderful and honestly just in awe of it all! Will definitely be returning to Winterthur for further exhibitions, as well as spring for the flowers!
Inside tour is nice and informative. You learn a lot about the DuPonts. The grounds are beautiful! Need more than a day! Ended up getting a membership so we could come back over & over! Reciprocal membership privileges & free visits of the grounds even when the museum closes any time during the year!
Well organized tours of the residence of a fabulously wealthy collector of Americana. As such this is truly a museum, and not just a look at the quirks of the DuPonts themselves. I especially enjoyed the gallery exhibits next to the house. I would like to go back in the spring, when the flowers are in bloom.
Loved our visit to Winterthur so much we got a 2 year membership. Can't wait to return in the spring and summer when the flowers are in bloom.
Beautiful grounds and museum. Very friendly tour guides.
Absolutely stunning gardens. The enchanted woods were a favorite for my children
I want to come back every season - if you live local (50 mile radius) buy the season pass, it's a few dollars more but worth the extra money, plus you'll want to come back! If the ticket booth lady told us a season pass was a few dollars more we would of taken the plunge, oh well next time. The follies were creative and beautifully crafted, the grounds meticulously maintained and the home is outstanding. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Bring your walking shoes, fancy camera and outdoor gear, there are treasures to be seen around the grounds you don't want to miss.
Beautiful. Highly recommend paying for the tours.
Amazing little gem in northern Delaware. History, beauty, educational, a lovely experience.
Personally I think it's better in the spring when the outdoor gardens are in bloom. XMAS displays are nice but I prefer Longwood Gardens at this time of year. Docent was great - very knowledgeable. Food is WAY overpriced and nothing special.
Beautiful perinatal gardens. Museum and house tour were well worth then price of admission. Guide was knowledgeable and very interested in sharing what she knew.
A beautiful place. Unfortunately it was raining so we couldn't see the gardens. The collection is massive but we only got to tour one floor. We would have liked to see more of the house. Overall a great experience though.
The staff were excellent and very welcoming and informational. The grounds were spectacular and Pam is an awesome trolley driver! Can't wait to go during the normal season.
This was an interesting exhibit. The costumes from the Netflix show, The Crown, were fascinating and beautiful.
You must visit in every season. There's do much to see and the food is great.
We had a wonderful day at the taping of the Antiques Road Show... Unfortunately we were not allowed to photograph....
I went here for an event and was incredibly impressed with the size of the grounds. There was no way with the time we slotted foe ourselves that we could have made it through every thing Winterthur has to offer. There are tram cars running to take you between the follies with super knowledgeable docents. Everyone working was easily identified in polos and were very friendly. There were many bathrooms along the way. And the most important part, the grounds are stunning. It is very hilly so I can imagine handicap access being a struggle on and off trams or if you wanted to walk just as a side note but other than that if you want real good exercise this is the place.
I enjoyed the outdoor landscaping and gift shop. The interior of the house wasn't anything extraordinary but the furniture was interesting.
Beautiful historic house surrounded by lush gardens! There's many different tours and rooms to discover and see! Interesting destination for all ages as they offer various school programs along with many different guided tours for all interests from design to history and day to day life back then! During the Christmas time the house is beautifully decorated - definitely worth seeing!
Amazing history and excellent guides. Always worth a visit. And we made it the pinnacle of our tour.
Great place to currently see bulbs blooming at this time.
OUTSTANDING, words can't describe the beauty and professional presentation of the CROWN wardrobe collection.
What a beautiful place to visit and tour. The mansion and museum are fantastic. Unfortunately it is December and the flowers are not on bloom but the grounds are spectacular! We all want to return in spring to see all the azaleas and the spring flowers in bloom. The trees are some of the most Unusual trees anywhere around here. One day is not enough to see all that there is to see!
Amazing house and grounds. Well worth the Yuletide visit!
Varied gardens, extensive collection of interesting American art, furniture, silver and decorative items.
The tours are excellent. The garden is beautiful. I hope to visit again soon
Beautiful historic place. Worth the drive.
A combination of exhibit galleries and mansion rooms decorated as they were once used by part of the DuPont family. In addition to their own items on exhibit in the galleries, they also house travelling collections. I have seen Downton Abbey and The Crown costume exhibits here. The rooms are filled with antique furnishings and collections of ceramics. The garden tram tour is also worth taking and tea in the tea room is a delight. Prices in the gift shop are ridiculous, though.
Had a great time last week at Winterthur.
Really great for a day out. Educational, but beautiful.
A holiday tradition. Lots of rooms full of antique furniture all decorated for Christmas parties of different eras.
Fabulous day trip. So much history & education. So impressed we bought a membership. Thank you DuPont family!
We really enjoyed the Costuming the Crown exhibition!
Tillie gave us a lovely private tour... it was truely amazing... Thank you... Her knowledge and kindness was much appreciated and admired...
Well worth the time spent, but didn't see as much as I would have liked to
Wonderful grounds for walking and strolling. Unlike Longwood Gardens, the landscape is much more natural. The rotating exhibits in the museum are usually quite interesting.
Lovely exhibit changes frequently. Displays of American furniture collected over many years. The Yule Time theme is enjoyable, lavish and demonstrates how homes were decorated back in the later 1800 into the 1900. Fascinating, lots to see. You can visit many times and still see new items and decorative pieces.
Lovely gardens and a fascinating museum. Well worth visiting if you're in the Philadelphia area.
Wonderful tour of Wintertur all decorated for Christmas. The other exhibits were very interesting too. Looking forward to the next exhibit!
Amazing simply amazing.
This place is a classic! It's the former home of Henry Francis duPont who turned it into a museum for pre-industrial revolution American antiques. The collection is astounding. If you appreciate handmade antique furniture and furnishings, this is definitely the place to visit.
It was ok. If you like soup pots, dishes and stuff, this is for you. Has nothing really about the family themselves or what they used at the time. Staff was informative and kind.
Beautiful house with many things to see!
Loved it so much that we became members. We've been there twice this month and will definitely go back a few more times soon.
Beautiful holiday decor, interesting historical location
So much to see The Mansions are really neat. There's always something to do at Winterthur. All year long.
A must visit historical home. We love to go for the Christmas display
The grounds here offer stunning views, quirky children's garden, and some great plantings. The mansion itself? This guy had too much money! He collected for the sake of buying. Just not impressed with what the owner did here.
Always love time spent there. Inside and outside.
Beautiful museum and grounds!
An incredible collection and estate! The magical garden for children was unexpected but perfect for my toddler.
Went during a slow calendar week—didn’t see much. Staff was fantastic, tour guides were great. Had a great even if we didn’t see much of the house.
We went here in place of Longwood Gardens as tickets were sold out there. It did not disappoint. We were able to fill time with indoor exhibits and tours. Our tour guides were polite and very knowledgeable. It was a great experience.
Wonderful mansion and gardens - beautiful inside and out.
Wonderful place to visit and suitable for all ages. The grounds are very beautiful. The gallery was very interesting and features a wide array of furniture glass ware and porcelain. Very impressive.
It has 2 features - a DuPont secondary estate home & natural gardens. Can visit either or both. Gardens great for visiting with kids - has a children's garden.
An awesome garden with a lot of features and details. Something for everyone with a great kids garden
The biggest "house" I've ever seen. Gorgeous rooms, furniture and decor doesn't begin to adequately describe it. The grounds are enormous and the landscape is amazing. You've got to see this place to believe it. The most incredible "house" I've ever seen.
Went with a good friend to see The Crown costume exhibit and really enjoyed it. Learned quite a bit about the show and how it is made as well as more interesting history of the British Monarchy. Definitely recommend.
Great place to spend a day learning about history of The Diamond State
So this is what out taxmoney bought with profits from defense contractor DuPont
Just wonderful. Although much not in season, the gardens are still beautiful. The tram tour gives you a great background on Dupont's thinking in the design of the gardens and the surrounding farms. Very insightful. The house tour was equally impressive. The home is amazing and the tour guide used humor to make it even more enjoyable. We're planning a trip back in the spring to see the flowers
I enjoy the combination of passions that DuPont brought to this estate and the foresight to make it accessible to the public. The house and the collection of antiques is intriguing to say the least. The grounds and the diversity of plantings ensure that there is something to enjoy year-round. What an incredible place, and to think that one man had the wherewithal to envision, build, and oversee it. This is as close as we come in America to experiencing royalty.
Wintertur is the result of a rich man's folly. The main mansion has hundreds(!) of rooms furnished in many different historical styles. The guided tours can only show the smallest bit of this huge architectural marvel. The ground are lovely and peaceful; there's no traffic noise at Wintertur. Many paths wind thru the grounds The staff members are most cordial and helpful. Be sure to take the tram tour for an excellent overview of the extensive grounds. There is a pleasant cafeteria, if you're hungry Well worth a visit!
Quaint mansion and lovely expansive grounds. Many winding paths through well-managed forest and gardens. You can take a tram around or walk. I like it more than Longwood, it's less touristy.
A great time
The museum and gardens are gorgeous! We were so lucky to have the house tour and a special tour of the quilling pieces. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. The costume exhibit from "The Crown" is breathtaking. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in and the costumes were not behind glass. Photos are encouraged. Please give yourself an entire day to enjoy everything!
...what a marvelous exhibition! Well stocked with the most interesting trucks and tractors! Courteous and knowledgeable staff! These gardens are the epitome of kempt, and the ride on all conveyances were delightful. Wonderful fare in the restaurant and cafes, and, delightful finds in the gift shops...
My husband and I went for the Costuming the Crown exhibit and were pleasantly surprised at how much more there was to see! The gardens were so beautiful, the tram ride was informative and comfortable, and the house was marvelous. We can't wait to go back to see more of the meticulously manicured gardens!
One of my favorite places to spend a sunny weekend afternoon. I just bought a membership here because I figured after going three times in less than a month, it would probably be worthwhile. I love bringing my camera here - every time I've been, I see something new that i didnt see the first time around. There's some really interesting history with this place that you'll learn if you take the trolley from the visitor center to the museum. Some of the trees they have there are the tallest and most magnificent trees that I have ever seen. And if you have kids, they will love Winterthur's Children's Garden. Just wear your walking shoes, because you will be doing a lot of walking.
This place is fabulous and cannot be seen in just a day. The gardens should start with the tram tour then walked on your own. The house tour then looking at the galleries the next day.
Fabulous look at how this DuPont lived and close exposure to some of his American antiques with excellent guides. Beautiful grounds. Nice gift shops. Well worth your time.
A must see to enjoy the sites! Lovely, historic, abundant.
Unbelievable museum. Must see.
Would like to have seen more of the house.
Absolutely breathtaking!!! Get your comfy shoes though 'cause u sure gonna do some walkin'. I worked a wedding event there & it was just gorgeous! Need to do SOME'em 'bout they're central air though! Summer is coming folks!
Great place to visit.
Beautiful grounds, interesting house tours, great place to spend a day
We took a behind the scenes tour about Mr. Dupont and his antique collecting. I hadn't realized he had expanded the house / mansion dramatically to be able to house and show the collection he was building. Wonderful tour. The regular intro tour was also interesting. They also have a tour of the grounds. It was designed as a planned natural landscape instead of formal gardens. Very interesting if you like American antiques. He also brought in rooms from old buildings that were being demolished to show different architectural periods
So pretty the way they decorated the rooms for Christmas
House tours, intro and private in depth, various gardens, gallery and museum. Could spend all day here. Huge collection of American decorative arts and interiors pre civil war. Large tureen collection. Recommend visit early May for azaleas.
You will go on a guided tour of the house. I was on the introductory tour and saw the 5th and 6th floor. My guide was awesome and very detail oriented so our tour lasted longer than the average allotted time. It was very interesting and informative. The furnishings, flowers, wallpaper, antiques, etc. Are simply amazing. If you love antique furniture you will love what is in this home. I cant even imagine the money that was spent cumulatively on the antique furnishings. There is a beautiful gift shop in the museum store and another gift shop at the visitor entrance so you have plenty of opportunities to buy some beautiful things. There is an actual curator museum onsite where they actually touch up paintings or restore furnishings or tapestries. The property is huge and you will get to ride around some of the gardens on a tram. I am sure it would be the best in the spring when more flowers are in bloom. It was a fun and historical experience.
Very interesting and beautiful place inside and especially the landscape.
Wonderful Yuletide program. Beautiful grounds and mansion. Tram driver Duncan made the day ever so much more special. Thank you, Duncan.
Beautiful grounds and a sprawling museum mean you can visit multiple times and not see the same thing twice. That's not to mention the annual Christmas displays which are worth a look every year.
This place is really neat! You can get several tours that guide you through a mansion housing several different styles of American art. I thought it was a very cool experience.
Winterthur is not only about the beautiful mansion. I could spend days exploring the grounds.
Great historic house, furniture and room collection, fantastic gardens!
Lovely Christmas displays, fascinating history, very well-informed docent.
The exhibits they have are concise and very well curated. Two floors, with smaller offshoots from the main gallery. I go throughout the year to see what's new.
Beautiful Grounds and Museum, can't wait to go back !!
Wonderful weekend embroidery workshop at this beautiful garden wonderland.
Wonderful museum - Brandywine valley - DuPont estate.
Very pretty grounds.
Absolutely fabulous location, staff, administration, you name it. If you have not visited, you are deprived.
The grounds are beautiful as are the house and exhibits.
Fantastic place to see flower gardens and antique home furnishings.
Beautiful gardens, house tour is good, but short. Lots of furniture exhibits. Did not C it all in the day there.
Fascinating collection of American antiques. Superb gardens with lots of walking paths. The Enchanted Woods is a great place for children of all ages Interesting stories of the du Pont family. The museum has a very interesting collection of lamps, explaining the history of lighting from candles to oil & gas lamps to electricity.
absolutely beautiful - not crowded this time of year and spring and summer flowers are amazing
We expected to spend just a few hours here and wound up staying five! The gardens are beautiful and the house tour is incredible. Also, the grounds are very easy to navigate if you're mobility challenged - they have plenty of shuttles, elevators, and even a garden tour by bus. Many routes have alternatives if stairs aren't an option. We went the weekend before memorial day and the weather was perfect and there were hardly any crowds or wait times. The food is also very good, reasonably priced, and has a lot of healthy options if you want to stay for lunch.
Great place to visit all year round but Christmas is the best.
Those watching the Netflix series "The Crown" will enjoy the display of costumes from the production.
Loved the docent-led 10-person Yule tour in the house.
Was there for the Antique Roadshow, Winterthur is absolutely Beautiful, Beautiful place for Weddings, As well as family portraits.
The gardens here are more naturalistic than Longwood, and the museum itself contains many treasures of American furniture design. The tours are interesting and the gardens relaxing; it's a beautiful place to spend a lazy Sunday.
Pricey but amazing
Loved the student tour. Guide was iffy but knew what she was talking about.
One of thee most enthralling trips I have been on in a while, learned a lot and seen a lot. Tram ride was awesome, even though it was cold. Just wish we could've seen more.
This place is rad. My wife went to grad school here and we grew to love the place. Very interesting.
What a wonderful experience. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The house is so full of beautiful history, I could spend forever finding new things. Well worth the price of admission which includes a tram tour of the grounds and walking tour of the house. I wish I had a longer visit.
Great collection of american furniture, pottery, and Americana. The specialized tours are well worth it. The yuletide one give a good sense of how the Christmas celebration has changed in this country over time. From the trees to the decorations to the wrapping of presents to the food served. Make sure you allow yourself enough time.
Very good historical place well maintained gardens and museum of antique collection of art and furniture
Another unique exhibit of current popular entertainment, the costumes of "The Crown". Skillfully and artfully put together similar to the exhibit in Downton Abbey several years ago.
This was an enjoyable experience taking the guided tram tour throughout the naturalized landscape , the general guided tour of the beautiful mansion and then walking around the special exhibit on costuming the Crown tv series. On the way there, we drove through some beautiful Brandywine countryside such that I expect a spring or fall foliage visit to Winterthur would be especially lovely. The only slight negative is that the tour didnt include going upstairs to the sleeping quarters, but that is covered under another tour for an additional fee and even more of a time commitment. What we did for over 3 hours was sufficient.
The mid century modern exhibit was spectacular
Wiinerthur Galleries are delightful. We visited at Christmas and the Estate has decorated theme trees in every room that are exquisite. The gallery had a doll house and dinner ware exhibit that was totally unique. I have never seen anything like it. Our tour guide for the tram tour through the garden and the guide through the Estate home were perfect, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I am definitely coming back in the Spring to see the gardens.
It is utterly beautiful. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and kind. All I would ask is for those visiting and taking the guided tours. Be mindful of others we paid to be there and listen to the qualified guides speak. When they ask you to not talk when they are talking please respect that. We paid to hear t.hem not you. This is not the fault of the staff but of disrespectful visitors
There are a great number of charming things at Winterthur, from the beautiful gardens full of random "follies," to the Museum of folk arts. One can enjoy high tea, for $45, where the Du Ponts themselves did.
A MUST visit...
The Enchanted Woods is enchanting for children if all ages.
Wintithour is basically a giant collection of period rooms masquerading as a house. This would be amazing, however the way its currently set up turns your brain to mush and just doesn't really provide a informative narrative of either decorative arts or architecture. This house/museum hybrid needs to be reprogrammed as a real decorative arts museum. There is so much potential here to make a good museum out of this collection, but so much gets looked over because of how the collection is displayed or convoluted by lack of informational materials or organizational clarity. Most of these issues could be solved if they just allowed self directed visits instead of forcing everyone to take a tour. I haven't encountered this restriction at other museums of this size. The collection is far too large and with too many distinctive items to be viewed at the pace of the guided tours they force on all visitors. While I appreciated the knowledge of our tour guide, it bothered me that there were no informational cards or signage that visitors could use to better explain what they see. This means that the entire experience of the museum has to be facilitated and explained through the tour guides I can't recommend visiting the museum in its current state for anyone interested in either house museums or period rooms. Fans of decorative arts will appreciate the collection, but again not the forced tour guide driven experience.
Pretty good if you like Americana !
Fantastic guide! Tour very very interesting.
I have been here before, but we we're blessed with two phenomenal tour guides (one on the outside tour and one inside). Thanks gardens are naturally landscaped and beautiful. My daughter liked the Enchanted Garden especially. I just love the feeling a beautiful view gives.
Beautiful place! Lovely mansion and gardens. Great place to enjoy a lovely day.
I always learn something new every time I visit. I loved the exhibits and tour guides - Matt had me laughing the whole tram ride!
Loved the home and gardens. Nice tour!!
We took a guided tour over Christmas. The museum is always changing and a unique look into a by-gone time. The gardens there are always a great place to walk because so few people venture out onto the many paths. It always feels like my own private garden.
Incredible and festive way to usher in the Christmas season.
Great antiques and history, beautiful grounds.
Fabulous garden for lots of wildness and walking in quiet without lots of other folks around. The cafe was excellent too.
Nice place to visit and work at.
Beautiful American furniture museum and fantastic grounds. Will be back several times to see different plants in bloom.
Beautiful grounds , tram ride was breath taking. A beutiful home with very articulate guides. Everything inside is period dated but not from the original home. The story behind the home and the family is wonderful but the fact that they renivated rooms and added things to fit the tour disapointed me.
There was not much in bloom when we visited but you could still see the beauty and magnificence of this estate.
Impressive; worth the time.
Worth visiting! The gardens weren't in bloom this time of year but the tour was still informative. My daughter loved the fairy garden! The tour of the mansion is entertaining and educational and the mansion itself is very impressive.
Current exhibit in Museum is great. Take time to enjoy follies by walking or taking tram.
Gorgeous and expansive, ranking with the Hearst (California) and Biltmore (North Carolina) estates.
Wonderful yuletide tour at Winterthur. Every room was decorated and beautifully done. First time there. Also are lunch in the cafe, salad bar.
Amazing place!! Cant believe it took me 15 years of living in SE PA and I hadnt been to Winterthur. Must see!
Beautiful estate gardens & meadows in addition to a HUGE house filled with thousands of pieces of American history (decorative arts). Friendly staff.
Amazing collections. Beautiful grounds. Great tours. Would return.
A nice museum in Delaware flaunting the lifestyle of its owner Henry Du Pont.
Beautiful. Note you only see 12 rooms out of the 175. Garden tour is fun.
Sure, they have a 175 room mansion, which is fine and interesting and all that... But the reason we are members, (and drove 45 min to go there twice last week) is because the grounds are fantastic. There are trails and paths that criss cross all over the property, allowing you to walk through a carefully planned "wild garden" that is peaceful and beautiful in all seasons. Free parking, members can walk after hours, what's not to love?
Loved the exhibition at Winterthur. Also, went on the tram which was a very peaceful ride but educational.
Their food is so good. Excellent beer list and really good service.
Very well run, informative, enjoyable tour
The best part was the enchanted forest! Signed up for the house tour but skipped it and hung out outside instead. This was definetly a Dupont weekend.
We'd been wanting to visit for months. It met and surpassed our expectations. Don't miss the Faerie Village in the woods. Wife and I also enjoyed the labyrinth walk.
Awesome collections, spectacular grounds. Be sure to check the garden wing at the gift shop for plants from the Winterthur gardens - sometimes they have a baby Dawn Redwood. Different tours available. Our guide knew the house inside and out. Great place to volunteer!
