“Connect to the real world”

Connect to the natural world through exploration and discovery at the Delaware Museum of Natural History. Experience habitats from around the globe, gaze up to a giant squid, encounter a jaguar face-to-face and marvel at the diversity of shells from around the world. Gallery highlights also include the only permanent dinosaur collection in Delaware, a simulated coral reef, and a Science in Action paleontology lab. Throughout the year the Museum also hosts several special exhibits on national tour. Museum researchers maintain our expansive collections of mollusks and birds, including the second-largest collection of birds’ eggs in North America. Scientists from around the world visit the Museum to study specimens and request loans to assist them further in their research. The interactive Nature Nook features hands-on science activities geared to meet the needs of the Museum’s youngest guests. Educational programs include summer camp, school tours, community outreach visits, and scout activities. In addition, visitors can view nature films in the Community Room, shop in the Museum Store, enjoy the Butterfly Garden, or hike along the Larry Scott Nature Trail. As a non-profit institution, DMNH relies on the generosity of members, donors, or corporate sponsors to sustain high-quality exhibits and educational programs for the community.
