Things to do in Delaware

    Delaware Archaeology MuseumDelaware Archaeology Museum Dover, Delaware
    The Delaware Archaeology Museum in Dover, Delaware houses over 11,000 years of human history and relics that pertain to the state dating back from the earliest Native American tribes to the European colonization to the current day. Displayed are outstanding relics like stone and bone tools, ceramics, arrowheads, glass and personal items that were used in the state from the 17th century to the last. There are the relics and remains from a Native American burial ground, pieces of glass and pottery found in the numerous archaeology digs around the state, set in the magnificent 1790 Presbyterian church that sits adjacent to the Museum of Small Town Life. This church had replaced the old log church that stood here for decades, and was donated to the state in 1947 after a newer one had been constructed in 1924. This museum and others are situated in the Fist State Heritage Park at Dover, that contains many historical and cultural structures from the first state to ratify the United States Constitution; with the many locations showcasing the state's role as the First State. Included in this park is the Legislative Hall that is the state's capitol building and houses the offices and assembly room for the Delaware State Legislature and has been since 1933. Next is the Delaware Public Archives that house a marvelous collection of items that date back to the 17th century through the present day. The State House Museum was the first state capitol building, and was constructed in 1792, and used until 1933, and the Johnson Victrola Museum is also located in the park, that was built in honor of Eldridge R. Johnson, the founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company and contain marvelous and interesting artifacts like paintings, memorabilia and trademarks from the early development of the sound recording business. The Museum of Small Town Life is right next to the archaeology museum and contains displays that depict a number of businesses from the late 19th century life in the state and houses a post office, print shop, woodworking shop, pharmacy and general store. The Delaware Visitor Center and Biggs Museum of American Art are excellent studies in the early history and culture of the state, with many wonderful exhibits. The Woodburn House is the governor's residence, bought by the state in 1965 and used by the state's governor ever since.  

     New Castle Courthouse
    New Castle Court House New Castle, Delaware
    The New Castle County Court House has been referred to as the New Castle Courthouse, and sits in the middle of a 12 mile radius that distinctly marks the border of Delaware and Pennsylvania, and one of the oldest courthouses in the nation. The structure was built in sections during the three centuries of the colonial and federal government, and before the Revolutionary War was the meeting house for the three counties that made up early Delaware. During 1776 and 1777 it became the state house, becoming the New Castle County courthouse for three centuries, with court being held here every so often to be able to continue its claim of being the oldest continuously used courthouse in the nation. In 1972, it was made a National Historic Landmark, since it was constructed in 1732, and used for the state's colonial assembly until 1777, while it was the state's capital. There are excellent historical materials housed inside that document the state's boundaries, slavery and abolition and colonial history.

    Fort Delaware State Park Fort Delaware State Park Wilmington, Delaware
    Fort Delaware State Park sits on a 288 acre island, called Pea Patch Island, and is a state park that was built in the 19th century by the US Army in 1815 to protect the harbors of Wilmington, Delaware and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The fort was burned to the ground and then rebuilt before the Civil War, and just before the start of it was transformed into a prisoner of war camp. During WWI and WWII, it would continue to be used as a deterrent and for the protection of the Delaware River, and then in 1945, Pea Patch Island and Fort Delaware was made surplus by the US Department of Defense. The Fort Delaware State Park was one of the first state parks in the state, and started in 1951, and is accessed by ferry alone, available for historic programs and tours. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and also a favorite spot for hiking and picnicking. The island has a history of appearing up out of the Delaware River in the 18th century as a mud bank, and according to legend or folklore, got its name when a ship carrying peas ran aground and after spilling the entire cargo, created a garden of peas. It continued to grow, and by 1814, was big enough for the fort to be constructed on it, creating the perfect place for a fort to protect the river and its channel up to Wilmington and Philadelphia. In 1859, the original log fort was replaced by a brick and concrete structure, and was used in the Civil War to house those Confederate soldiers that had been captured at the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. The majority of the soldiers that died on that slab of mud were buried at the nearby Finns Point National Cemetery in New Jersey. When the final prisoners were released, the fort would have only a small contingent of caretakers, and would be mostly abandoned until 1870. When trouble arose between Spain and the United States in 1898, it was again manned, and become the protector it had been built for. Congress authorized the installation of three 16-inch guns to be put at the south end of the island fort, and put into place in 1898, when the Spanish-American War began. It was fully garrisoned until 1903, when the caretaker force was returned. The fort was again used and staffed in 1917, when the nation entered WWI in 1917, but the majority of troops had moved out by 1919. After the horrific attack on Pearl Harbor, the fort would once more see troops arriving, although by 1943, the guns were taken away and the next year it would be abandoned for the final time. Declared surplus by the government in 1945, it was donated to the state of Delaware in 1947, and opened as a park in 1951.

    Delaware Museum of Natural History
    Delaware Museum of Natural History Greenville, DelawareThe Delaware Museum of Natural History was started in 1957 by John Eleithere du Pont by Greenville, Delaware and opened in the year 1972, and is well known for the marvelous collections of bird eggs, seashells and birds; becoming the oldest natural history museum in the state. John du Pont started collecting these items when he was just a boy and wrote a number of books on birds, and thinking about beginning a natural history museum in the state. Henry Francis du Pont donated some land across from Winterthur for the museum, when John asked him, and the opening had about 200 members of the du Pont family come to it, as well as other representatives from northeastern natural history museums. Around Christmas, each year, the museum has hosted Dino Days since 1993, and added more space to it in 2005, as the space was being filled to overflowing. The main collection of the museum began with a million sea shells and 100,000 bird eggs that would be used by scientists to check the pesticide contamination of wild species during the state's early ecological studies. The museum started expanding its scope and now includes; mammals, dinosaurs and Charles Darwin. Other exhibits include life sized dinosaurs, an African watering hole, an idea of what the sea looks beneath the surface, a jaguar, and the plethora of eggs and birds. Some of the featured exhibits include the dinosaur gallery with magnificent dinosaur skeletons and a science in action lab; Hall of Mammals that showcase the creatures from Africa, North and South American and Antarctica; plus the animals that live in the state and thrive in its streams and fields. The Hall of Birds now hold 118,000 species of birds and nests, with an extinct passenger pigeon, a comparison of the hummingbird's egg to an elephant egg; and 3D dioramas. Animal adaptions depict how animals live in their natural habitats despite the growing environmental encroachments, with authentic specimens of black rhino, cheetah and giant anteater. The shell gallery houses a simulated Australian Great Barrier reef that is quite popular to the visitors that come here and walk over it. You can see a 500 pound giant clam shell and learn something about mollusks, scallops and nautilus; and a giant squid that hangs down from the ceiling and can be startling when you first notice it. There is also a butterfly garden, the Larry Scott Nature Trail and an exhibition on Darwin and evolution, making this museum very interesting and helpful in understanding more about the creatures that we live with on this huge blue marble.

    Winterthur Museum and Country EstateWinterthur Museum & Country Estate Winterthur, Delaware
    The Winterthur Museum and Country Estate in Wintethur, Delaware contains one of the best collections of Americana in the nation, and the former residence of Henry Francis du Pont, a world famous antiques collector and horticulturist, and had been called the Henry Francis DuPont Winterthur Museum. During the turn of the 20th century, H. F. du Pont and his father, Henry Agernon du Pont designed the estate in the inspiration of 18th and 19th century European country houses, and the younger du Pont would add and enlarge the estate as the years passed by. In 1951, when the estate became a public museum, he moved into a smaller residence on the property, that spans 979 acres by Brandywine Creek, and a 60 acre naturalistic garden. The property originally contained 2500 acres when it was a country estate. H. F. du Pont began collecting European artworks and decorative arts until he met Electra Havemeyer Webb, who later started the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, but interested him in American art and antiques by the marvelous paintings of Charles Louis Heyde. Henry gained worldwide recognition in 1929 after he bought a tambour desk, created and labeled by John Seymour, an exquisite cabinetmaker from Boston, at the Parke-Bernet auction galleries in New York for the record sum of over $30,000 for a piece of Americana. Afterwards, he would become an avid collector of American decorative arts, enlarging the estate at Winterthur to contain his new collection, administrative offices and conservation labs. Inside the spectacular mansion museum there are 175 different period room exhibits housing some 85,000 pieces of art, with the majority of them being opened to the public for small guided tours. This impressive collection spans over two centuries of the American decorative arts, mostly from 1640 to 1860 with some of the most prominent pieces of American furniture and fine art. The Winterthur library and research center contains over 87,000 books and about half a million images and manuscripts, the main part pertaining to American history, architecture and decorative arts; with elaborate and large research, conservation and educational facilities. During the 1990s, the informal galleries were opened in a newer building next to the main house, that houses changing and permanent exhibits. The museum also houses the Winterthur/ University of Delaware Art Conservation program and the Winterthur Program in Early American culture.

    Nemours Mansion and Gardens
    Nemours Mansion and Gardens Wilmington, DelawareThe Nemours Mansion and Gardens are sitting on 300 gorgeous acres of a magnificent country estate with jardin a la francaise formal gardens, which are based on symmetry and forcing order on nature and a spectacular classical French mansion in Wilmington, Delaware that looks more like a huge chateau and has over 70 rooms that are spread across five floors on 47,000 square feet. The estate shares its landscape with the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, and both owned by the Nemours Foundation. Nemours was started by Alfred I. du Pont in 1909-1910 and called it after a French town that was affiliated with his great-great-grandfather, Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours, and constructed in the architecture of Louis XVI-rococo style of French architecture. The mansion itself contains quite rare French 18th century furniture all through it and a magnificent eclectic collection of prominent antiques, tapestries and works of art. These span from the 16th century and include religious works, paintings by European masters as well as early works by American artists like Sidney Lawrence and Frederic Remington. One of the most significant pieces is the very rare Louis XVI musical clock that was created in 1875 by Peter Kinzing and David Roentgen, that plays four distinctly different tunes on a pipe organ and dulcimer. The outstanding estate contains the most distinguished and biggest jardin a la francaise style of landscaping and separate gardens in the continent and patterned after the beautiful gardens of Versailles that encompass the Petit Trianon that exists at the Chateau de Versailles. The central axis goes a third of a mile from the mansion facade, paralleling the main thoroughfare that heads to the huge mansion and the grounds are magnificently landscaped with garden ponds, plantings, statuary and a pavilion that is surrounded by very natural woods.
