Costumes from the popular television show,
Downton Abbey were on exhibit at the Winterthur
Museum from March 1, 2014 through January 4, 2015. The museum is located on one of the DuPont estates. The estate is located at 5105 Kennett Pike (Route 52), Winterthur, DE 19735, an easy drive south down Route 1 from the Philadelphia area.
I understood from the museum guides that the the Winterthur Museum was the only location in the USA where the clothing was displayed.
