Downton Abbey, The Exhibition, has extended its limited engagement until April 2018 due to popular demand. The extensive exhibit honoring the hugely successful PBS Masterpiece show that ended its 6-season run last year, transports you right into the post-Edwardian heart of the house, escorting you through the servants’ quarters “belowstairs,” to Cook’s busy kitchen, and Carson’s neat pantry, up to the Grantham’s dining room and into Lady Mary’s bedroom.
Throughout the journey, along with memorabilia, objects, furniture and music, costumes which were an integral component of the show’s success are prominently displayed. The show culminates in an upper floor entirely devoted to clothing and accessories worn by the show’s most beloved male and female characters at key points in their story: from Lady Mary and Lady Edith’s wedding dresses, to Anna’s lady’s maid uniform to Rose’s royal presentation dress.
The exhibition is located at 218 West 57th Street with more US locations to be added at a later date.
