Serving as a threshold to the A.I. du Pont de Nemours Mansion and Gardens, the Nemours Visitor Center includes reception, ticketing, visitor support, a film room and an exhibition space. The site circulation strategy begins when visitors enter the 2.5-acre site from a major thoroughfare and approach the mansion using the formal entrance drive. Exhibits are fully integrated into the building and formulated around a timeline that puts the Nemours story into context. The exhibit gallery is full of daylight enabling views of the estate grounds from the Visitor Center.
