Winterthur Museum and Country Estate is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont, an avid antiques collector and horticulturist. Enjoy this incomparable blend of beauty and history in the estate's gardens, gallery with early American antiques, riding the tram, visiting the Enchanted Woods™ children's garden, shopping, and dining on the grounds.
On your visit to Philadelphia, be sure to include a scenic drive into the countryside to see the renowned mansions and beautiful gardens of the du Pont family, one of America’s most prominent families and founders of one of America’s most successful corporations. Plan to tour three of their magnificent homes – Winterthur Museum & Country Estate, Hagley Museum and Library, and Longwood Gardens. Also include a stop at the nearby Chaddsford Winery to enjoy a sampling of wines from one of Pennsylvania’s most highly regarded wineries.
