  • 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.  more »

  • I like the collections and the traveling exhibits. The museum store always has many things I want. The sculpture garden and wooded grounds are lovely.
  • Very nice for the price. Took Mom out for the afternoon. 10/10 would go again.
  • A very horrible experience. It doesn't even deserve 1 star. From the moment we walked in we were followed around by security and staffed. Don't touch the pictures, stay 4 feet away from the drawings, no drinks or food allowed, stop playing with the spinner because of security reasons. This was our first time here and it is our last. I really felt that because we are latinos we were being targeted. I want everyone to know how bad we felt and how disrespectful we were treated. Maybe if we were white we would be treated differently.
  • Very nice museum and a great location in a quiet area. Very pleased I had a Exhibition there in 2008
  • The Delaware Art Museum has the largest collection of Pre-Raphaelite art outside the U.K. and it is exquisite. Dante Rossetti's unfinished work, "Found," which he considered one of his most important, is on display. The museum hosts other collections and is small enough to be enjoyed in one visit. The grounds are beautiful as well. If you love the Pre-Raphelites you have to visit this museum.
