“Downton Abbey: The Exhibition” arrived at Biltmore on Nov. 8 with set recreations and artifacts, more than 50 of the show's costumes and exclusive multimedia elements. The exhibition will run through April 7, 2020, and will highlight the parallels between the show, the movie and Biltmore's Vanderbilt family, friends and staff. The grandeur and size of Biltmore House, designed by prominent New York architect Richard Morris Hunt in the Châteauesque style, also echo England's Highclere Castle, where the show and feature film were shot.

► Also new at Biltmore, the “Through the Servants’ Eyes Tour” is an in-depth look at rarely seen servants’ areas including the Boiler Room, Butler’s Pantry and more.
