This museum, built to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the first Dutch settlers, is a historic gem. Two floors of exhibits displaying maritime and history will entertain you while the Wine and Spirits of Delaware exhibit and collection will impress. I like that they have plenty of hands on things as well. Pretty part of town and friendly staff.
Local history easy on your eyes set in an interesting building. Admission is free and you have two small rooms placed on the first and second floors with artifacts and some hands on items. I would say that you could cover the museum style in a half and hr to at most 1 hr. There are people around to answer... 更多
The lady and gentlemen working there were very knowledgable and friendly. A must to see if your interested in the history of the area. I noticed that there were pictures of the building without the red and white shutters which I found a much nicer effect. Either way worth checking out.
This is a small local museum with an interesting assortment of displays and artifacts. The admission is free and it's a great place to get out of the heat and explore some local history. The facility is staffed by knowledgeable people who are very friendly and welcoming. There are two floors to the museum (seriously it's the size of a... 更多

The Zwaanendael Museum might be the smallest museum that I've been to, but with free admission, a gorgeous Dutch-styled building and a few pretty neat artifacts inside, it fits the bill for a quick visit before or after dinner, etc. I would not by any means come out of my way for it, but it was a nice, quick visit.
The staff was very excited about the museum and more than willing to discuss the exhibits. Very small museum; great way to break up a morning. Less than an hour is needed to check it all out.
Very interesting looking building from the outside. Free admission. Inside were two exhibits -- one telling the story of a Dutch vessel that sunk off the coast of the Delaware that was recovered in recent years -- the ship's history is explained and artifacts from the ship are displayed. This was a nicely curated exhibit. Upstairs was an exhibit on... 更多
Lots of info, displays, slide show about early Lewes -- from the finds recovered from the old Dutch boat, to the distilleries in Delaware -- fun for everyone.
