Enjoy a self-guided tour into the premier entertaining rooms enjoyed by Henry Francis du Pont’s friends in the 1930s and ’40s. At that time, guests arriving at Winterthur for a country house weekend were ushered first to the Marlboro Room for afternoon tea and later were escorted to the magnificent dining room for a meal consisting almost entirely of foods grown on the estate. After dinner, guests might retire to the Chinese Parlor to enjoy a game of cards while listening to Ruth du Pont play show tunes on her Steinway. Or, they might relax in the Conservatory amid H. F. du Pont’s ever-changing display of blooming plants, before ascending the elegant curving Montmorenci Staircase to their bedrooms. Walk in their footsteps among the exquisite objects that make up Winterthur’s premier collection of American decorative arts and elegant rooms accented with abundant flowers taken fresh from the Winterthur cutting garden and greenhouses. Fifth Floor; (Adult [age 8 and above ]; 1 hr.
