  • This was a stop of many touring with my in laws and we made a quick stop at the museum. It frames the early days of Lewes as an important maritime port and displays many artifacts from the De Braak.  more »

  • Small but focused museum chronicling the history of the area. I was unaware of the Dutch influence here and found the information interesting. Exhibits on the local railroads and sunken vessels off the coast provide context that this area is more than just a place for a beach vacation.
  • The Zwaanendael Museum is a great little Museum filled with amazing history and artifacts from the Town and surrounding areas. The stall and Volunteers were very friendly and very informed about the area and its history. They relayed their love for the area and their bountiful knowledge to us in a easy and fun way.
  • Very educational. VERY helpful staff and knowledgeable. Will return again when in Lewes
  • Very interesting place. I learned a lot talking to the staff. The displays were set up offering interest. The whale bone was cool and they have a table with actual artifacts that one can handle and check out with a magnifying lense. A free, air conditioned must see in Lewes.
  • Its a fun tradition but it is very small with not much to interest the average person.
