A Winterthur Yuletide

A Winterthur Yuletide

Enjoy a delicious lunch at the Mendenhall Inn, tour Winterthur, and drive through Herr's annual spectacular Christmas lights display.

Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) is the premier museum of American decorative arts, with an unparalleled collection of nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America between about 1640 and 1860. The collection is displayed in the magnificent 175-room house, much as it was when the du Pont family lived there, as well as in permanent and changing exhibition galleries.

Our holiday experience begins with lunch at the award winning Mendenhall Inn which stands alone as one of the great destinations in the Brandywine Valley. After our lunch, be ready to experience Christmas at Winterthur; a visit that will provide one of the Brandywine Valley's most spectacular holiday showcases! Yuletide at Winterthur embraces the warmth and festivity of the season with a magnificent holiday tour of Henry Francis du Pont's mansion as well as breathtaking trees glittering with ornaments, dazzling room displays, a magical dollhouse, and the opportunity to shop and create new memories. After experiencing the magic that is Winterthur, we're off for another Christmas experience; the spectacular holiday light display at Herr's Snack Factory where guests will see decorated trees, shrubs, and even some reindeer.
