PREVIEW: Downton Abbey: The Exhibition

Posted at 4:06 PM, Oct 16, 2018

So, if this was a Star Trek exhibit I'd be super stoked about it coming to town, but it's Downton Abbey, a show I've never seen.  However, I am aware of the cult following the PBS hit show has so let's give credit where credit is due!

Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is currently being built at the old Macy's location in CityPlace and will open on Saturday, November 10.

Sarah Cooper, COO, NBCUniversal International Studios says, “With a movie in production and the Downton fan base more enthusiastic than ever, we’re delighted to be moving to Florida and opening up our exhibition to an even wider audience.” 

With an even larger footprint than its New York City counterpart, the South Florida exhibition will transport visitors on an incredible journey through the grand home of Downton Abbey and offer an inside look into the world of the Crawleys and those that served them below stairs. From Mrs. Patmore’s hectic kitchen and the gossip-fueled servants’ quarters to the family’s glamorous dining room and Lady Mary’s bedroom, fans will get the chance to walk through some of the series’ most recognizable and beloved sets. Visitors will also get an up-close look at over 50 of the show’s official costumes, worn by their favorite actors including Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and Dame Maggie Smith.

“We are most excited to have Downton Abbey: The Exhibition come to West Palm Beach after its New York City run,” said West Palm Beach Mayor, Jeri Muoio. “Our legacy as an arts and culture destination paired with the popularity of this exhibition is sure to make for an exciting season here in West Palm Beach. We’re grateful to our local partners – Discover The Palm Beaches, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, and CityPlace – for their support in helping bring this extraordinary attraction to our city.”
