Winterthur
Almost 60 years ago, collector and horticulturist Henry Francis DuPont  (1880–1969) opened his childhood home, Winterthur, to the public. Today, Winterthur is the premier museum of American decorative arts, with an unparalleled collection of nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America between about 1640 and 1860. The collection is displayed in the magnificent 175-room house, much as it was when the du Pont family lived here, as well as in permanent and changing exhibition galleries. You will have time to grab a snack or light lunch here.

Hagley Museum
Hagley Museum is the former industrial site of the original black powder works of the DuPont Company, founded in Delaware in 1802 and powered by the natural resources that surrounded it. See the original ancestral home and gardens of the du Pont family. Here, for more than two hundred years, the DuPont Company and family experimented, innovated, and pursued the American dream.

High Tea at the Hotel Dupont
The Estate Tea Service, featuring specially created blends of tea from the neighboring estates in the Brandywine Valley such as Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, and Nemours Mansion and Gardens.  The Estate High Tea includes: Tea sandwiches, Scones and Pastries.

Lights at Longwood Gardens
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.

7:00 PM Depart for home.
