Visiting Winterthur during Costumes of Downton Abbey

Timed ticketing offers select times to view our special exhibition Costumes of Downton Abbey while providing ample opportunity to enjoy Winterthur's beautiful 60-acre garden, tour Henry Francis du Pont's spectacular 175-room former home, visit Enchanted Woods children's garden, discover dazzling treasures displayed in The Campbell Collection of Soup Tureens, shop, dine, and so much more. Please note: if you are planning on taking a house and/or tram tour, they are guided tours that go in groups so there may be a wait.
