The Downton Abbey exhibit in nyc was excellent. Don’t bother paying extra for the headset as the displays are fantastic. Lots to see of the rooms and fashions. A lovely representation of the PBS series. Bring on the movie!! Not for small children.

I agree about calling ahead. Even though coats aren't being checked now even security questions might deter checking a suitcase. And I don't think there is an assumption of such a need.
