Walk through a country community and farm equipment through the years. See the history of agriculture in Delaware. Great place to have events. Children can move freely in this museum.

The Delaware Ag Museum in a great place to visit. They've reconstructed a little village with renovated buildings including a country church, blacksmith shop, etc. It's worth the trip just to visit Lulu their resident pig.

The 1890's village was great to walk around and, taken in entirety, was unlike anything I had ever seen before. The interior of the museum was a mixed bag. Maybe because the museum is totally focused on agriculture, the exhibits seemed very limited. My wife...More

Fascinating museum. Take a walk through the life of a farmer-antique tractors, a log cabin, a school house, train station etc. Covers every aspect of agriculture in U.S. history, from agricultural technology and transportation, to life of children on the farm. Great for all ages-it...More
