Walk through a country community and farm equipment through the years. See the history of agriculture in Delaware. Great place to have events. Children can move freely in this museum.

The Delaware Ag Museum in a great place to visit. They've reconstructed a little village with renovated buildings including a country church, blacksmith shop, etc. It's worth the trip just to visit Lulu their resident pig.
