Can’t wait for the “Downton Abbey” movie to come out? Consider visiting an immersive exhibition associated with the popular British series, which ran on PBS in the U.S., that will open in November in Florida.

“Downton Abbey: The Exhibition” closed in New York City on Sept. 3. Now it will shift to CityPlace in downtown West Palm Beach, Fla., starting Nov. 10, a press release about the exhibition said.

In the exhibition, visitors get to tour the beloved fictional home of the Crawleys, complete with sets of Mrs. Patmore’s kitchen, Lady Mary’s bedroom and the dining room where the series’ formal dinners took place.
