WILMINGTON, Del. - Delaware's Winterthur Museum is drawing big crowds with its 'Costumes of Downton Abbey' exhibit.

The News Journal of Wilmington (http://delonline.us/1rNzGFC) reports that the show had its 100,000th visitor on Tuesday.

The museum's annual visitation usually is between 100,000 and 110,000. If ticket sales continue, the exhibit could attract double the number of the museum's annual visitors.

David Roselle, the museum's director, says the show is in the fifth month of its 10-month tenure. He says visitors have come from all over the country.

The museum, which was founded by H.F. du Pont as a decorative arts centre, has added lectures and special events to enhance the show of 40 costumes from the popular PBS drama.
