‘Downton Abbey’ goes to Delaware

Officials at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware say an upcoming exhibit of costumes from the hit British television drama “Downton Abbey” could turn out to be the most popular in the history of the former du Pont family country estate.

The exhibit, which opens Saturday and runs through January, will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the design and creation of the show’s period fashion, as well as compare country house life in Britain and the U.S.

Museum director David Roselle said Wednesday he expects attendance for the exhibit will be the largest in Winterthur history.

In addition to 40 historically inspired costumes, the exhibit includes photographs, lectures and workshops.Downton AbbeyFeaturesGossipMasterpiecePBS
