Downton Abbey Costumes to Be Displayed in Glorious Delaware


Not content to obsess over every detail of the lives of Lady Mary, the Countess Dowager and Mr. Carson simply via your television or Internet connection? Not to worry—you now have a chance to get up close and personal with them, or at least their snazzy, gorgeous period costumes.

According to the Associated Press, costumes from the hit show are on display at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware, which means you’ll have to go to Delaware (for now) to see them, but still—totally worth it if you a Downton Abbey disciple:

The exhibit, which opens Saturday and runs through January 2015, will
offer visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the design and creation of
the period fashions that are a focal point of the television show and a
comparison of country house life in Britain and the United States. Winterthur director David Roselle said Wednesday that he expects
attendance for the exhibit will be the largest in Winterthur history.

There are approximately 40 costumes on display, as well as photographs, workshops and other Downton-themed events. People are expecting this to be a pretty big event as well:

Officials at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware say an upcoming exhibit of
costumes from the hit British television drama “Downton Abbey” could
turn out to be the most popular in history of the former du Pont family
country estate.
