Lots of special events and discounts for members, but nice to visit anytime. Sundays are free! Not only do they have an extensive collection, but they also have great visiting exhibits.

Very nice museum, including a great sculpture garden. But... the Chihulis are not displayed in a way so you can view their full beauty. Otherwise, well worth a visit.

This is a relatively unknown jewel in the Wilmington area. Great Howard Pyle collection! Forgive the museum administration for their past errors and see some great art in a very pleasant building!
