Nestled in the heart of Delaware’s beautiful Brandywine Valley, our extraordinary museum, garden, and library offer a variety of tours, exhibitions, and engaging programs for all ages. We’re known for our magnificent collection of American decorative arts on display through Henry Francis du Pont’s former home and showcased in our permanent and rotating gallery spaces.
Spend the day exploring our famous 60-acre naturalistic garden, or get lost in 1,000 acres of rolling hills, meadows, and woodlands carefully designed by H. F. du Pont. Winterthur has 25 miles of well-marked paths and trails, and lush gardens to explore. Our award-winning children’s garden, Enchanted Woods, provides kids the perfect place to safely run, play, and imagine.
Your safety and comfort during your visit are important to us. Winterthur is following the guidelines established by the Delaware governor’s office. Reservations are required. Please bring a mask.
