Surrounded by lush gardens, Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library houses an eclectic collection of artworks and everyday items from the past. The 404 hectare (1000 acre) estate used to be the home of antiques collector and botanist Henry Francis du Pont. He established the museum, and its collection kept growing even after his death in 1969. Although the museum displays about 90,000 artifacts from all over the world, its main focus is on American cultural heritage. The library holds hundreds of thousands of publications, including some very rare books and periodicals. The museum garden has more than 7,500 plant species and features play areas for kids and families.

Winterthur Museum reviews
Expected more color. Lots of green and a very pretty place. Tram ride was nice. Lack of color kept me from a desire to wander. They say the color is there around Mother’s Day. more »

This is a wonderful place to visit. Acres of well maintained land and trails with amazing sceneries. This place is perfect in all seasons. *Plentiful parking. *Highly recommend.
This was my second visit to Winterthur. And it was just as exciting and enchanting as the first!! The first time I visited, we walked around the grounds in the Spring time. So it was fun to be able to see the inside of the mansion this time with all of the gorgeous Christmas decor. Winterthur is a dreamy visit for all — one that serves as the perfect place to revisit time and time again!
