We will enjoy a tour of the Museum and a special visit to the original exhibition “Costumes of Downton Abbey,” featuring 40 exquisite designs from the award-winning television series. The exhibit contrasts the fictional world of Downton Abbey and the world of the du Ponts in the first half of the 20th century. Admission and lunch are a total of $40 and the deadline for reservations is October 1, 2014.
