‘Downton Abbey' the Exhibition Is in Boston Ahead of Its Fall Box Office Release

Costumes from the upcoming movie are on display that haven't even been seen yet

It's been three years since the final epiosde of "Downton Abbey" but it's back and bigger than ever before.

It's headed to the box office this fall and right now it's at The Castle at Park Plaza in Boston where you can experience the history, the fashion and the house.

"Downton Abbey" the television series, was hugely successful, particularly in the U.S. American fans of the British period drama can get their fix of all things Crawley in this immersive exhibit. 

"It's very interesting because you see how it's one of those rare shows that people just love everything about it, Gareth Neame, Executive Chairman of Carnival Films said. "The cast, characters, what they wore. The room feels like someone's home but you know very well that you're actually walking into it for the first time."

The first room is a maze of faces. It's the perfect refresher of the characters and their stories as they developed over six seasons. 

Actual sets from the show were brought in to really make you feel like you're there in "Downton Abbey."

Everyone talks about the costumes and the fashion. Here you can get up close and personal with styles from the early 1900s all the way through the 1920s. 

The exhibition kicked off in the U.S. with a New York engagement back in November of last year. It's in Boston for a limited time before moving to the Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina for the holidays. 

The Boston exhibition is unique because costumes from the upcoming movie are on display that haven't even been seen yet. 

For fans eager to see the movie, the trailer says quite a lot. 

"It's the biggest event that's happened in Downton's history. The King and Queen are making a royal visit and the Granthams and all of their servants have to up their game and of course things don't go completely according to plan and they have to pull some rabbits out of a hat and make the occasion a big success," Neame said.

Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is now open. Children ages 14 and under visit for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Tickets are $35 It's open daily from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
