Hagley Museum
The 1803 du Pont family ancestral home, Eleutherian Mills, will feature holiday decorations and interpretation on the French traditions of exchanging gifts on New Year’s Day and the celebration of Twelfth Night. Experience the du Pont ancestral home decorated for the holidays and the “Christmas Trees Past and Present” exhibition, celebrating the history of Christmas trees in America. Starting in the 1840s with a Victorian tabletop tree with handmade ornaments and candles; then to the 1930s with a tree decorated with colorful electric lights, shiny glass ornaments, and tinsel; and ending in the present with several modern reinterpretations of decorated trees.  Enjoy a Light Luncheon before departing.

Winterthur
Enjoy Winterthur’s Yuletide holiday tour to include the garden tram ride and self-guided exhibition galleries. Winterthur is Henry Francis Du Pont’s childhood home. This 175-room home is now a premier museum of decorative arts with an unparalleled collection of nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America between 1640 and 1860. Winterthur is set among a 1,000-acre preserve of rolling meadows and woodlands.

Start your visit off with a full belly! Enjoy the Yuletide buffet. After, Longwood is yours to explore. No holiday is complete without a visit to Longwood Gardens, where more than 400,000 twinkling lights and spectacular fountain shows compose a brilliant wonderland you will surely love. As you stroll through the grounds, marvel at lights strung on nearly 40 miles of wire glowing in the trees. Large, starry snowflakes and icicles sparkle throughout the Gardens, while the continuously performing Theatre fountains present the colors of a Christmas rainbow.
