I have been coming to this museum my whole life, and it keeps getting better! The permanent exhibitions alone are worth coming for, particularly the collection of Howard Pyle and Pre-Raphaelite paintings. The museum deserves frequent visits, however, in order to see the well-selected and thoughtfully-displayed rotating exhibitions. I was there most recently for a display of gilded age American artwork, many of which I have never seen or heard of. For locals, the Delaware Art Museum has extensive community engagement, and offers classes for artists of all ages and levels of ability. For tourists, this is a Wilmington attraction that is not to be missed. It is compact enough that you can see most of the museum in a couple hours, still leaving time to see other nearby landmarks. The area surrounding the museum includes Rockford Park, Brandywine Park, and architecturally significant homes along Kentmere Parkway. There is plenty of parking, a nice gift shop, and a snack bar.

A small, but well-curated and interesting collection with some stunning pre-Raphaelite works. In particular, if you are interested in the history of book illustration, it's a fascinating look at that. When we visited, there was a moving and powerful exhibition about civil rights and protecting yourself from police in protests, with historic pictures juxtaposed on a historic typewritten self-help pamphlet for protestors. Very moving. I also liked the Ashcan School work -- there is a marvelous Hopper and an intriguing Wyeth as well. Also it's free in July (2020). Very good social distancing/protocols.

The Delaware Art Museum is a personal favorite. I love to re-aquaint myself with "old friends", works that are on permanent exhibit. From a warm welcome to a friendly farewell from the staff and other visitors this museum always pleases.
