Delaware: ‘Downton Abbey’ costumes on display at Winterthur Museum


Officials at the Winterthur Museum in Wilmington say an exhibition of costumes from the hit British television drama Downton Abbey could turn out to be the most popular in the history of the former du Pont family country estate. The exhibit offers a behind-the-scenes look at the design and creation of the period fashions that are a focal point of the TV show and a comparison of country house life in Britain and in the United States. In addition to 40 historically inspired costumes, the exhibit includes photographs, lectures, workshops and other events.
