  1. Is the exhibit all in one room? I am torn between seeing it at Winterthur or going to the Biltmore in the spring. I know Biltmore describes their exhibit as being in multiple period setting rooms. Thanks for the help!

    • The show is in one very large room that has been split into smaller areas but still flows. It is in an exhibition area separate to the house.
      It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to see it well. Once you leave the exhibition, you cannot reenter.
      The show at Winterthur does include some DuPont related information, which is interesting but a bit disconnected.
      There was some interesting information presented such that British ties originated as regimental colors, and that American ties because they were not regimental have stripes on the reverse diagonal.
