Over the years the Delaware Art Museum has only improved. Their gardens are beautiful, the exhibits are thoughtful and amazing and the docents are always ready to help. Highly recommend this local gem. Don't forget to explore and find the meditation garden around back.
Clean, friendly, fantastic pieces on display. Just great!
Exquisite and lovely museum. Love taking my teenage kids here, they love art. Great for a rainy day
Awesome. Lovely area and lush landscaping.
Lovely afternoon! Interesting exhibits (loved the Tiffany exhibit!), nice sculpture garden.
Always have such a wonderful time at this museum.
I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. They had a nice variety of artists, some were instrumental in the course of our current media with some of their art styles and how our current perceptions were developed. They also had a Tiffany exhibit which I enjoyed.
A great moderate-sized museum with a lot of nice art. Look forward to returning.
More impressive than I expected! I also enjoyed the cafe there!
What an extensive array of art displayed here, loved every minute.
Great exhibition. Covid controlled entrance, helpful staff.
This is a great little museum! Goes nicely beyond the pictures of white guys, nice exhibitions.
There are many wonderful art pieces in the galleries. A 27 stop audio tour of the museum's permanent collection is accessible via QR codes.
It is always a treat to view the latest exhibits and visit "old friends" at the Delaware Art Museum.
Wonderful art museum with thoughtful exhibits. Definitely a wonderful thing to do in Wilmington!
Very nice for a Sunday in Wilmington.
It's a somewhat small museum, but definitely worth visiting! It's free on Sundays.
This museum is gem of the Delaware Valley. It has a great art collection and a great gift shop.
Free on a rainy Sunday. Lovely art and beautiful building. The outdoor displays and labyrinth was a sweet bonus.
Many exhibit halls were closed and being reimagined. The museum still had great art work and a sculpture garden. Staff was very friendly.
Carefully curated museum mostly dedicated to American Art. A lot of refreshing themes of American Art that I haven't seen in other larger east coast museums! Definitely was a surprise visit! This is one of the smaller museums that you can spend hours browsing their quality artworks in collection!
It was free admissions when I first visited the museum. It's small, but have a lot of quality art pieces!
Loved the museum! It provides a great experience and is very informative and educational with all the beautiful works of art.
Delaware Art Museum is open to the public. There we're few people making viewing enjoyable. Everyone abided by safe distancing and masks. To the Pyle's, whom we discovered; a great illustrator for early book, magazine, and newspaper. To the best pre-Raphaelite collection in the U.S. Well worth a visit.
Half off for students and military. Good prices with a large array of art and not very crowded during the pandemic. Attentive staff that was very passionate about the art there and its history. Even without a guide with us, we received a nice amount of information from staff about pieces we were interested in.
I attended the Chinese New Year Celebration as a student ASL and English interpreter. This was my first time at the Delaware Art Museum, and I have to say, I was blown away. I arrived early, met the friendly and accommodating staff, and was able to tour the museum before it became crowded. It is gorgeous! I especially love the room that is downstairs called the Kids' Corner. It is so colorful, vibrant, and has tons of interactive aspects for children. As for the Chinese New Year Celebration, I believe it went off without a hitch. The staff had prepared a number of delightful activities for children and scheduled very impressive and interesting performances. I believe everyone involved had a wonderful time. It warms my heart that the Deaf children were able to take part in all of these activities with full communication accessibility, thanks to the hired interpreters and volunteer interpreters, such as myself. It was a fun and excited day for everyone. Now that I know it is there, I plan to visit the museum again in future.
I really enjoyed the museum. The illustrations by Howard Pyle and others were interesting. I also enjoyed the Pre-Raphaelite gallery. The Layered Abstraction exhibit and the Julio daCunha exhibit were great, as well.
this is an amazing art museum. they have some rotating exhibits that really spark interest, but their static exhibits are really creative and thought-provoking. in addition to the galleries inside, there a sculpture garden outside of unique pieces. don't forget to stop by the book store/gift shop. it has some special pieces that just might tickle your fancy.
We were visiting from Chicago on a business trip, looking for free things to do in the evenings. We appreciated DAM having free admission (thank you, DuPont) Thursday evening -- it's a lovely little art museum, not too large. We walked around the entire first floor in about 1.5 hours. The displays are beautiful and they have a nice selection of American Art. Their grounds are lovely too. Highly recommended!
The art was was wonderful the story and history of the artist's are interesting pirates of the Caribbean actors and director came to this museum to see how they would play pirates use the fashion from the paintings...
I really enjoyed this museum and I feel it deserves a higher rating. No, it isn’t a giant museum and the works are pretty specific and limited in genre, but wow, they had some great stuff! I loved the Pyle rooms. This was a discovery of this artist for me and I love him now! I also really love the Pre-Raphaelite artworks (with the red haired beauties!). 2 hours wasn’t enough time for me. I missed a couple of rooms and could have used another half hour but I got kicked out at 4 when they closed (they really should consider staying open till 5 like most museums!). The special exhibit of juried artists was also fabulous (recyled material artworks).
Excellent, intimate museum. Holds perhaps the best American collection of Pre-Raphaelite art in its collection, as well as works from notable artists of the Delaware Valley. Worth a visit if in Wilmington.
Nice arts. Free parking. Spent good time with kids. Terrace with enough chairs and tables for food. Free day on every Sunday.
First time there and it was beyond my expectations. Bigger than expected and the front desk lady was very kind. Gave me a map and explained the layout of the musuem. Art was beautiful with modern art on the second level. Will be back for sure to check out the sculpture garden !
We have been to a few bigger art museums but we were impressed with the art displayed at this museum. The staff was very friendly. We went on a Thurs 4-8 and it was free with live music and people outside relaxing. The location is beautiful. We were able to see Civil Rights inspired exhibits that are ending soon and really impressed by those exhibits. The gift store is great. We will def return and enjoyed our time.
Very nice museum and a great location in a quiet area. Very pleased I had a Exhibition there in 2008
Just leaving the Delaware Art Museum is the "Our America/Nuestra América" exhibition of Latin American art; remaining is the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood collection which makes this place worth a visit.
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.
