In the early 20th century, H. F. du Pont and his father, Henry Algernon du Pont, designed Winterthur in the spirit of 18th- and19th-century European country houses.

Winterthur offers a variety of tours, exhibitions, and programs for all ages. Visitors can discover the museum's collection of American antiques celebrating the best in style and craftsmanship, or stroll through the 60-acre garden and surrounding landscape of woodlands, waterways, and rolling meadows. There is also Enchanted Woods, a garden for children of all ages. Lastly, visitors can explore the research library that is a center for the study of American art and material culture.

We hope you enjoy our work.
