Downton Abbey exhibition opens due to audience demand

An interactive Downton Abbey exhibition is opening because of demand from fans who can't get enough of the award-winning historical British drama.

Even though Downton Abbey ended in 2015, the show’s popularity remains as strong as ever, with talks of Downton Abbey the movie gaining momentum.

And now a new interactive exhibition is set to open to satisfy fans who miss the popular series.

Launching in Singapore on June 17, the exhibition will give fans all the grandeur and sophistication of Downton Abbey, without actually travelling to the real stately manor.

Downton Abbey: The Exhibition allows this incredible legacy to live on by offering a multi-million dollar museum-quality experience that will delight fans, ultimately extending the connection they have with Downton’s compelling characters and storylines,” Michael Edelstein, president of NBC Universal International Studios said in a statement.

Guests will be able to walk through Mrs Patmore’s kitchen, check out the servants’ quarters up close and view costumes worn by the stars of the show.

Never-before-seen footage of the award-winning series will also be on display, as will historical details from the time period the show was set in – beginning with the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and ending in the post-WWI mid-1920s.

After Singapore, the exhibition is scheduled to travel the world, ending in 2018 in the US. No dates have been confirmed for New Zealand yet.

You can pre-register for tickets to the Singapore stop here, and stay informed on upcoming locations and dates, which will be released later in the year.

Downton Abbey is a global phenomenon and viewers all around the world continue to ask for more,” NBC’s Edelstein says.
