Had a great visit to the museum. We are farmers in MD and really enjoyed the log cabin, tools and equipment and the village outdoors. Highly recommend a visit to the museum when traveling to Dover. Nancy was so helpful and knowledgable. Price was affordable and content of museum top quality.

We stopped by for a visit while in Dover and this is a really interesting place to visit. Highly recommend it if you have young children, lots of educational items to see. We spend about an hour but if you read most of the material at each display you could spend a much longer time. Most of the displays are... More

Visited with family. It was kinda small but very clean and bright and airy. Large open spaces to visit when large crowds come in. Our visit was about 30mins long.

I have driven past the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village many times but recently stopped with my wife and two grandchildren. We visited mainly to see Lulu the pig, who was featured in a recent newspaper article. One grandchild really likes pigs and we thought it would be a great opportunity for her to get close and pet and feed... More

Great place to take kids! Historic buildings that you can go through and touch things and use things; live animals to hold and pet; an unbelievable collection of farm equipment, a folk doll collection, a wood carver's life's worth of farm carvings, a crop duster airplane, room sets from history, a nice gift shop with all price ranges of items....

Had a wonderful experience viewing all the old equipment and farming devices. Anyone into antique tractors etc would enjoy it.

The Agricultural Museum and Village is truly a walk through history for those of us who lived through "the good old days" when lower Delaware was mostly farms and small towns. I believe that all buildings (except the mill) are real, old buildings that were moved to this site. They even have the "smell" of old buildings. The barber shop... More

This museum is a superb educational venue for young and old alike. Providing a wide array of heritage agricultural exhibits - tools, implements, household items, building displays, and animal-support equipment - the "look back" into the lives of our ancestors is clear and complete. A very well done exhibit!! Our congratulations to them on a job well done. You won't... More

After many years of passing by the museum I finally stopped to visit. This museum offers plenty to see and much to learn for it's very reasonable admission fee. Many well planned exhibites both indoors and outdoors. Well worth the couple of hours it will take to all there is to see.

I camp here for NASCAR races. The museum is funded by donations. They have two fund raisers for race fans. The museum is very nice and gives the feeling of old farm life in Delaware. A must see if you have kids
