Meet Kristian.

Kristian and his family have come to the Delaware Museum of Natural History since he was three years old.

Now, as a teenager, he is part of the Museum’s teen programs including the Summer Science Corps Volunteer program and Teen Science Café Leadership program.


From toddlers to teens to seniors, DMNH is a community resource for lifelong learning in science and nature education.

Please consider donating today to provide support to our amazing collections, budding scientists and good stewards of our planet.

Lily wants to be a research scientist when she graduates from college.

As a young child, she came to DMNH with her grandmother. This summer, she gave back by volunteering through the Summer Science Corps.

“It is our responsibility to help educate kids and make sure they have a general idea of the natural sciences.”

“When visiting as a young child, I could stay here all day. It brings it full circle that I came back to work behind the scenes. I love science and I love working with kids.”

“DMNH has taught me how to engage with people of various backgrounds.”

“The Museum helps me explore many different aspects of science, including live animals, geology, and paleontology.”
