‘Downton' exhibit may set mark

WILMINGTON, Del. » 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 the history of the former du Pont family country estate.

The exhibit, which runs through January 2015, offers visitors a behind-the-scenes look at 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 based on advance ticket sales, he expects attendance for the exhibit to be the largest in Winterthur history.
