Welcome to the Delaware Museum of Natural History 

Connect to the natural world through exploration and discovery at the Delaware Museum of Natural History.  Gallery highlights include habitats from around the globe and the only permanent dinosaur collection in Delaware.

Museum researchers maintain our expansive collections of mollusks and birds, including the second-largest collection of birds’ eggs in North America. Scientists from around the world visit the Museum to study specimens and request loans to assist them further in their research.

The interactive Nature Nook features hands-on science activities for our youngest guests. Educational programs include summer camp, school tours, community outreach visits, and scout activities. Visitors can view nature films in the Community Room, shop in the Museum Store, or explore our outdoor activities. As a non-profit institution, DMNH relies on the generosity of members, donors, or corporate sponsors to sustain high-quality exhibits and educational programs for the community.
