Winterthur Azelea Mansion

The Museum from the Reflecting Pool

WINTERTHUR (“WIN-ter-tour”), a former DuPont family estate nestled in the Brandywine Valley of Delaware, is a marvel of an indoor/outdoor museum. It is called, credibly, the “premier museum of American decorative arts.” Its 60 acres of “naturalistic” gardens are nourishingly gorgeous. Nowhere have you seen such a volume and variety of azaleas. Unspeakable decorative treasures await your discovery on the small-group guided tours inside the vast mansion museum. Sorry, no photos may be taken there, but there are no such restrictions in the galleries and the opulent Cambell’s Soup Tureen collection! Find more information and reserve tours at:
