A C&G Partners team led by Keith Helmetag designed the exhibits inside a new visitor center for the Nemours Mansion & Gardens in Wilmington, Delaware. Designed as a walk through time, the exhibition follows the interwoven narratives of the DuPont family and the parallel events of world history of the time. The exhibition serves as both an overture and a finale to a grand tour of the home and grounds. The visitor center is a key component of a major restoration. The Mansion was originally designed by Carrere and Hastings , the architects of the New York Public Library and Frick Mansion. It is fully "one acre under one roof" and includes the largest formal French garden in America.
