The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad Exhibition
Come experience an intimate look at historic Biltmore and the family that created it with The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad, our new exhibition at the Biltmore Legacy in Antler Hill Village. Included in your Biltmore admission, this exhibition sheds light on the time that the Vanderbilts spent together at Biltmore and beyond.
Explore the lives of George, Edith, and Cornelia Vanderbilt at home and in their travels throughout Europe and the Far East. You'll get a close-up look at many of the exotic and rare treasures they collected throughout their lives, including a priceless chess set owned by Napoleon Bonaparte, an extraordinary collection of Samurai armor and weapons, and an intricate Cartier vanity and lipstick case encrusted with diamonds and jade. An early Harley-Davidson motorcycle representing the Vanderbilts' enthrallment with motorized transportation will be displayed, and the fascinating story of the fateful decision that saved the Vanderbilts from perishing on Titanic will also be told.
Biltmore is grateful to the following organizations for loaning several objects exhibited in The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad:
The Titanic Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN
The Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC
