  • Such a beautiful place! Pure serenity! We got there when the flowers were just blooming and everything was so vibrant! Complete beauty! The church itself is an astounding piece of historical context! A must see if you are in the area!
  • Has ALOT of retrieved items and very historical stuff. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and always ready to answer your questions!
  • An interesting museum about the first settlers in Delaware. Fun for the family.
  • This is a lovely historical site, with interactive and very well done displays. You could spend a lot of time here, even though the space is limited, because there is so much to take in! The only reason for a lower rating than 5 stars is that the 2nd floor display on Delaware wines and spirits was not of interest to me - might be to someone else, though.
  • So much history missing a chance to be more engaging
