Beginning this weekend, November 17th through January 6th, you have an opportunity to take a magical tour that will transport you to Christmases of old. Experience Winterthur’s most beloved holiday displays from past Yuletides, and discover holiday traditions of Americans from the colonial period through World War II, including the introduction of the first Christmas trees decorated with goodies for children by Pennsylvania Germans in the 1800s. Enjoy special displays recalling du Pont family holiday traditions and winter festivities. Be inspired and amazed by an array of fanciful decorated trees throughout the tour-including the magnificent dried-flower tree. For the first time, the Yuletide tour is free to Winterthur Members and is included in general admission for nonmembers! For more information on the family fun event click here.
