The Downton Abbey Exhibit

One of the TV shows that I faithfully followed and miss terribly since it ended is Downton Abbey. 

Set in an English country estate in the early 20th Century, it chronicles the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants. 

Thankfully the Downton Abbey Exhibit is currently on-going in New York City showcasing sets, props, and costumes from the show. 

An audio guide provides helpful references and thoughtful facts. Here are a few photos in case you're a fan, too. 

Let's start Downstairs, the world of the household staff:

This egg holder is my favorite item!

The call bell system indicating the rooms of the estate

Now, let's go Upstairs, the world of the Crawley family:

This is how the table is set every evening

The gong that will announce that "Dinner is ready"

Apart from the beautiful outfits, the lavish accessories were on display, too:

It was a beautiful exhibit! If you're ever in New York City, stop by and re-live Downton Abbey. It runs until September. 


  1. I think I'm the only person in the country who has never seen the show.:-( My goodness, the ladies' beaded evening dresses are gorgeous!

    1. One of the reasons I love the show are the costumes and set design! They really put an effort in the details!

  2. I love to watch that show. I live in Alabama and would love to see the exhibit, but would never make it to NY. I've enjoyed looking at your pictures - it was almost like being there - lol
    . Thanks for posting them. Cindy
