The former estate of Henry Francis du Pont features an extensive antiques collection and a 60-acre garden, including Enchanted Woods, an outdoor space just for kids. See textiles, paintings, prints, ceramics and glass pieces in the galleries. In the Touch-It Room, kids can play in a hearth kitchen, step into an 1830s general store and experience an 18th century tea party. At various times throughout the year, Winterthur hosts the children’s story series WOW! Wee Ones & other family events.

Through Jan. 6, experience stroller-friendly Yuletide Tours at the country estate, where you’ll set your sights on an era-spanning holiday timeline, from majestic trees with glass ornaments popular in the 1800s to antique Santa figurines to an 18-room dollhouse decked out for the season.
