Marvel at the stunningly furnished rooms in which du Pont entertained family and friends in grand style! Enjoy world-class exhibitions in The Galleries, the Campbell Collection of Soup Tureens, and so much more!
Just for groups! Upon request, groups can reserve customized tours, lectures, and activities to suit your interest, plus early shopping in our Museum Stores. Enjoy on-site dining in the Visitor Center Café. Ask about our special Group Tours Menu.
