WILMINGTON, Del. - Officials at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware say an upcoming exhibit of costumes from the hit British television drama "Downton Abbey" could turn out to be the most popular in history of the former du Pont family country estate.

The exhibit, which opens Saturday and runs through January 2015, will offer visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the design and creation of the period fashions that are a focal point of the television show and a comparison of country house life in Britain and the United States.

Winterthur director David Roselle said Wednesday that he expects attendance for the exhibit will be the largest in Winterthur history.

In addition to 40 historically inspired costumes, the exhibit includes photographs, lectures, workshops and other events.
