Very well-produced exhibit. Transports you right into Downton Abbey through a combination of videos you watch, props interspersed with written vignettes of perspective into characters and the time period, costumes and fabulous sets.

The exhibit was great but very crowded. There was a bottleneck at the beginning. Seeing all the gowns was very interesting.

Loved this exhibition. Had recently visited Highclere Castle, where Downton is filmed, so this was a nice addition to our trip. The gowns were lovely, and although small, there are some fun interactive activities to take part in.

Saw the exhibition in NYC in May. It is just not worth the money. Other than costumes, almost nothing is authentic - just lookalike props and wall-sized projections. A traveling tourist trap.

Seeing the characters and the place again was so lovely--it just made me really, really happy. I missed them all so much! The costumes were excellent, as were the little films. It was just so delightful to step back into that world. Only downside was...More
