Biltmore Downton Abbey: The Exhibition

Biltmore Downton Abbey: The Exhibition

November 1-April 7 & June 27-September 7, 2020
Downton Abbey returns to Biltmore. This nationally touring exhibition features set recreations, costumes, and never-before-seen multimedia elements. Unlike the 2015 costume show inside the house, this new exhibition is in two locations on the estate: Amherst at Deerpark and The Biltmore Legacy in Antler Hill Village.

The highly popular Downton Abbey series ran for six seasons. The anticipated feature film was released in September 2019.

The recreated sets include Mrs. Patmore’s kitchen, the busy servants’ quarters, the family’s grand dining room and more.
