Spend a delightful summer day at the Paine Art Museum & Garden with its stunning exhibition of 35 costumes from the first four seasons of PBS’ popular British Series “Downton Abbey.” You’ll find changing fashions for changing times featured throughout the rooms of the historic Mansion which once belonged to the late Nathan and Jessie Paine, of the thriving Paine Lumber Company.

The self-guided tour takes you through this art-filled 1920s mansion with its ornate interiors and its beautiful gardens to explore at your own pace. The Downton Abbey Exhibition features a variety of ensembles for the Crawley Family and their servants including country tweeds, lavish evening attire, delicate afternoon dresses, servants’ uniforms, and footmen’s livery.

Enjoy lunch at Fratello’s Waterfront Brewery & Restaurant situated along the scenic Fox River, on the original site of the Paine Family Lumber Mill. You will be offered a choice of three sandwich choices with sides (vegetarian option available), dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage.

Rain or shine, you’ll cruise in comfort from the open top deck or the enclosed salon.
