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?

This museum is a must see for history lovers! Very few people seem to know about this place, since we didn't cross paths with anyone during the visit. It is a shame for the government not to be funding the museum's activities. We spent almost three hours wandering about the premises. The well documented exhibits featured the daily life of... More

Wow! What a great collection of historical agricultural museum. Even if agriculture isn't your thing, you will enjoy the village located behind the main barn. They have an incredible collection of historic buildings that were relocated to the museum. The buildings will take you back in time. There are a considerable number of wasps, so be careful.
