Delaware Trip- Part 1

After a lovely trip to the First State, can a post be far behind? Enter today’s photo post.

Winterthur Museum:

A stately building with over hundred rooms that was the residence of the Dupont family is now a museum that visitors can view and marvel. The family collected period furniture and dinnerware and fabrics of different American times that are on display. (And oh what a collection!)

We only did the house tour and enjoyed a stroll in the areas near the actual mansion but there is lots more to do and see. I especially wanted ToddlerT to enjoy the Enchanted Forest section but the little one seemed content with the bus ride itself. Ad since she was an angel during the house tour – what else can I say?

Few pictures of our visit:

The lady (blurred image) was our charming guide who gave us a wonderful house tour. She answered all our questions and shared many interesting tidbits about the collections and how they came into the possession of the owners. It made for a very interesting tour and time passed so quickly.
