Description:

The Museum boasts the largest British Pre-Raphaelite collection (works from 1800s England that were inspired by art from the Middle Ages) in the U.S., along with other pieces by Delaware and American artists. In the Kids’ Corner, children can touch paintings, design their own art & read storybooks. Also check out the Copeland Sculpture Garden with a unique outdoor labyrinth. Every Friday morning, the Glory of Stories program for ages 3-6 presents a different story relating to the Museum’s collection. Free admission every Sunday.

KIDBIT: Stay in the lines as you travel through the twisty labyrinth at the outdoor Copeland Sculpture Garden.

FAMILY MUST-SEES: Get kids’ imaginations flowing with Tom Otterness’ Crying Giant, a 13-foot-tall bronze sculpture that inspires many to create stories about the behemoth’s mood and pose for a photo op. Then, move to the Labyrinth in the Anthony N. Fusco Reservoir. As kids follow the single path into the relaxing, game-like interior, they’ll hear their voices echo once they reach the center.

Cost Cutter

Skip individual admission and purchase a family pass for $25, good for admission for up to two adults and four children. (Individual admission for adults is $12, kids are $6.) Every Sunday, admission is free. Consider visiting on Friday mornings for Glory of Stories, an art and storytelling program for preschoolers. The program is $3, but no admission fee is charged.
