This Friday is the the First Friday of the Month of August. Therefore, the Delaware History Museum in Wilmington, DE offers free admission from 11am-4pm. Normally admission is $6 for adults and $4 for youths (age 3-18).
It’s a really interesting Museum with the main exhibit discussing the history of Delaware and then a rotating exhibit in the front, always focusing on Delaware but on different aspects. The last time that I went it was focused on the Railroad in Delaware.
What’s great for smaller kids at the museum that is included in admission price is Grandma’s Attic. This is a large play area with dress up clothes, kitchen area, store front, school area, and puppet show area. Great for you to bring friends to.
Since it is located on Market Street, make sure to bring quarters for the parking meters so that you don’t get a parking ticket!
