Come spend the day at Winterthur! Nestled in the heart of Delaware's beautiful Brandywine Valley, this extraordinary museum, garden and library offers a variety of things to see.
Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur (pronouned "winter-tour") is the premier museum of American decorative arts, reflecting both early America and the du Pont family's life there. Its 60-acre naturalistic garden is among the country's best, and its research library serves scholars from around the world. Come visit and explore this place of beauty, history and learning.
After lunch, the tour will include a visit to Longwood Gardens which encompasses 1,050 acres of gardens, woodland, and meadows. Enjoy over 11,000 types of plants and more fountains than any other garden in the United States.
