Henry Francis du Pont’s Winterthur, Part One: The Museum

Learn about the unparalleled collection of American decorative arts at Henry Francis du Pont’s Winterthur museum.

Nestled in the heart of Delaware’s beautiful Brandywine Valley, Winterthur is an extraordinary museum, garden and library. It is known for its magnificent collection of American decorative arts on display throughout the magnificent 175-room house, displayed much as it was when the family of founder Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969) called it home. Du Pont, an avid collector and horticulturist, spent his long life developing the home and land he inherited into an exceptional American country place.

With its unparalleled collection of nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America since 1640, join Winterthur’s Senior Curator of Education, Debbie Harper, for Part One of this lecture on this magnificent estate, focusing on the home and collections.
