Breaking News – Winterthur releases its bicycle policy statement
Winterthur Museum & Country Estate welcomes and congratulates you on your choice to “Go Green” by riding your bicycle to the estate.
For your convenience and safety, we have installed a bicycle rack adjacent to the Picnic House in the Visitor Parking Lot. You may secure your bicycle there while you enjoy your visit.
We do ask that all guests either walk or use the trams to tour the garden. Please do not take your bicycle into the property, as we wish to preserve the garden in the manner envisioned by Mr. Du Pont.
Tickets may be purchased in the Visitor Center,w hich is a short walk from the Picnic House. There are many ways to enjoy the garden and estate. Winterthur has a series of walking paths for wandering in the garden or simply getting you to your final destination.
The experience of walking through the garden is a pleasure during any season here at Winterthur. You may take the Garden Tram for a guided tour that ends at the entrance to the museum and Galleries. Alternatively, you may take the Winterthur shuttle bus directly from the Visitor Center to the museum and Galleries.
Thanks also go to Amy Wilburn and Carol Ireland for following up with the people at Winterthur as well as those guests and employees who advocated for the installation of the bike rack.
