POP-UP TRIP! Winterthur: Costuming “The Crown”, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art
Join Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh Travel Program on a two-night journey to two cities that offer a vibrant blend of history, culture, and gardens — Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. Less than an hour’s drive from each other, both destinations are seemingly two different worlds marked by deep contrasts that offer truly unique experiences. Our journey begins in the City of Brotherly Love, with a visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Known for its world-renowned collection, housed in a landmark building, tour the newly opened exhibition, The Impressionist’s Eye. The following day, visit Winterthur Museum, the premier museum of American decorative arts, housed in the magnificent 175-room former residence of collector, Henry du Pont. Receive a tour of the exciting exhibition, Costuming The Crown, from the beloved Netflix series. Additional visits include Longwood Gardens, where garden design, horticulture, and the arts interplay to create breathtaking seasonal flower displays, and Mt. Cuba Center, beautiful botanical gardens with 500+ acres of natural lands and native plant gardens. Our accommodations during the trip are at Hotel Du Pont, a timeless hotel located in Wilmington, DE.
