Introduction to Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

with an Exhibition Highlight

Friday, November 3, 2023, 10:30-11:30 am


On this free, virtual tour of Winterthur you will explore the Museum, Garden and Library—an American estate and museum in Winterthur, Delaware. This is a place of beauty, history, and learning. Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) is the premier museum of American decorative arts, reflecting both early America and the du Pont family’s life here. Its 60-acre naturalistic garden is among the country’s best, and its research library serves scholars from around the world. As a highlight, we will see the replica of the famous wedding dress African-American designer Ann Lowe created for Jacqueline Kennedy, which is featured in the exhibition, Ann Lowe: American Couturier. Our expert guides are museum interpreters, Josh Horowitz and Tyler Johnson, both of whom have a background in history.



This Zoom presentation is organized by Little Falls Village as part of our collaboration with them & is open to all. Please use the Register Now button. FHNN members and volunteers who need help registering can email with Winterthur in the subject line.
