Student Reviews of Delaware Cultural Institutions

Are your parents coming to town? Are you looking for somewhere to take a date beyond Main Street? Maybe you need a break from studying and want to explore the area. If so this guide to local museums is for you!

Undergraduates enrolled in the Museum Studies Program’s “Introduction to Museums” course visited local museums and historic sites and reported back on their experiences.

Written by students for students, their reviews do not express the official opinion of the University of Delaware or the Museum Studies Program. But they do reflect the knowledge students gained through Museum Studies courses at the University of Delaware.

We hope that these reviews inspire you to visit the great museums and historic sites beyond the UD campus!
