Explore nature inside and out at the Delaware Museum of Natural History
Experience an African watering hole, gaze up to a giant squid or ancient dinosaurs, marvel at shells from around the globe, and more. The museum also hosts special exhibits on national tour. Outside, explore the Pollinator Garden and Delaware geology, or our nature trail.
Museum researchers maintain our expansive collections of mollusks and birds, including the second-largest collection of birds’ eggs in North America. Scientists from around the world visit us to study specimens and request loans to assist in their research.
The interactive Nature Nook features hands-on science activities geared to meet the needs of the Museum’s youngest guests. Educational programs include summer camp, school tours, community outreach visits, scout activities, and other programs.
