    "Downton Abbey: The Exhibition" opens Nov. 8 and will feature a display of costumes, props, jewelry, set recreations, videos and virtual characters from the show.

    Offering a glimpse into the glamour of the Gilded Age, Biltmore will provide the perfect setting for the traveling exhibition.

    "There are many parallels between 'Downton Abbey' and Biltmore's real-life story of the Vanderbilt family, their friends and staff," said Biltmore's director of entertainment and event programming Travis Tatham.
