Description

Winterthur's Spring Tour has been a Brandywine tradition for more than 60 years. It was this opportunity to enjoy beautiful flower arrangements in the house, the Conservatory display, and the garden in all its glory, that brought thousands to our first Spring Tour in 1952. We continue the tradition today and encourage you to join us for a tour and walk through the garden. On select days, the garden staff will be on hand to take guests through the marquee displays of H. F. du Pont's garden. Make a day of it and join us for tea in the Visitor Center Cafe, shop in the Museum Store, and enjoy the floral display throughout the house and in the Conservatory.

Come celebrate the beauty of the daffodil and enjoy Winterthur's amazing daffodil display! Henry Francis du Pont used his collector’s eye in assembling hundreds of cultivars of heirloom daffodils, which he arranged in cloud-like drifts on Winterthur’s Sycamore Hill. The day’s events will include tours of the daffodils, a children's daffodil show and crafts, and an afternoon tea. Members free. Included with admission.
