12:00 PM Arrive at 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 lunch here on your own at their café.
