The Crawleys are back

Singapore is home to a first-of-its-kind Downton Abbey exhibition
NBCUniversal International Studios and Imagine Exhibitions will launch 'Downton Abbey: The Exhibition', an international touring exhibition at Marina Bay Sands on 17 June

Did you make the most out of loving Downton Abbey? It looks like we can't get enough of the Crawleys after six seasons of the aristocratic drama. The hit British television series returns to the spotlight after its sixth and final season in December 2015 with an international exhibition starting in Singapore.

While you won't really get to see the likes of Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville in person — at least, we don't think so — the historical period drama will see a return of the post-Edwardian era to Marina Bay Sands. As the venue of this first-of-its-kind immersive experience, the luxurious hospitality and lifestyle institution will house the Crawleys, their servants, their sets and all its trimmings. You'll get a peek at Mrs. Patmore's kitchen, the servants' quarters, detailed state rooms and Downton Abbey's official costumes worn by Smith and Bonneville. It's a grand update from 'Dressing Downtown', a costume exhibition that toured the US last year.

"'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," said Michael Edelstein, President of NBCUniversal International Studios. "We are excited to expand the brand in a manner that few TV series could ever dream of doing."

Apart from life in the Crawley household, the Downton Abbey exhibition will also touch on key events and culture of the time, think: World War I and the Roaring Twenties. After Singapore, the exhibition will make its way through the US in 2018.
