Yuletide at Winterthur

Yuletide at Winterthur

 

For those of us who live in Montgomery County, Maryland, Wilmington, Delaware is close enough for a day trip. On Monday, Dolores and I traveled to Winterthur, the home of Henry Francis du Pont to see Yuletide at Winterthur, their special holiday mansion tour. 

Yuletide at Winterthur is open for daily tours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through January 3, 2016. They are closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day but will be open on New Year's Day. Allocate time to see the special exhibits in the museum and to visit the gift shops. We always include lunch during our visits. 

Use the link to learn more about Winterthur. If you live in the area, we recommend the annual membership and several visits during the year.
