I have always come too early or too late to see the peonies at Winterthur Museum and Gardens, but this year I hit the jackpot and got to see the peonies in their new location. I had wondered where they went, but they are all concentrated in a walled garden now on the walk between the visitor center and the museum--and is it gorgeous!

Too much to see in one day Could spent several days in the house if you could book the various tours. Unbelievable gardens, one could go twice a week at this time of year and see new things each time. Would suggest the open tram to get a feel for where you want to walk. Wear your hiking footwear, lots of walking

The Azaleas were unbelievably beautiful. Walking through the gardens was awsome too.

No place can compare to this. Great place to visit and tour. You will see a type of lifestyle from an era that does not exist any longer. I recommend the membership so you can visit more then once. And be sure that you come during Christmas to see the Yuletide decorations.

Winterthur is renowned for its vast collection of american furniture. But don't miss the lovely gardens outside!
