Delaware Ag Museum is a wonderful place to take children to learn many things and see how life has progressed. Sadly, they don't know how hard their ancestors worked. They hold many benefit events through out the year and even host weddings. It's not fancy, but it is memorable and unique. I especially like the out buildings and everything they... More

If you've been around Delaware you realize how important farming is to the state. This museum does a great job tying past to present with great exhibits and artifacts. There is also an outdoor section.

If you were brought up in Delaware and have any sense of history, you will like the Ag Museum. Nice exhibits and farm equipment. It's worth an hour of your time. Outside exhibits also, but it was raining when we visited, so we didn't get to check that out.

We went to this museum as a small homeschool field trip. We didn't take the tour, but we walked around and "toured" ourselves. When we first walked inside, we saw a gift shop. A nice lady at the front desk told us about the area, and gave us a map and some popcorn for the chickens outside in the "Village".... More

First time visiting during this event. Great event for day of family fun. Lots of different craft tables set up for the children. Historic buildings decorated with different activities going on inside, even a live nativity. Watched the blacksmith make nails and spoke with Santa, what could be better?
