In addition to frequently changing Galleries that showcase the permanent collection, Winterthur presents extraordinary exhibitions that highlight the very best in craftsmanship and scholarship, from both our own collection and distinguished institutions around the world.

Costumes of Downton Abbey

 March 1, 2014–January 4, 2015

Costumes of Downton Abbey is an original exhibition of exquisite designs from the award-winning television series. Approximately 40 historically inspired costumes from the television show will be displayed and supplemented by photographs and vignettes inspired by the fictional program and by real life at Winterthur.


The Flowering of American Tinware

This pocket-size exhibition highlights the collection of decorated tinware that Henry Francis du Pont acquired from antiques dealers in New England and Pennsylvania, particularly from Ephrata, Lancaster, Carlisle, and York. These beautiful, hand-painted objects feature decorative techniques that have been in use from the early 1700s to today.

On view in the Winterthur Fellows Gallery.
