We went to the museum to see the Pre-Raphaelite exhibit, which was lovely. But I must say, I left the museum with an enhanced appreciation of N.C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle, professional illustrators for early 20th century magazines and books. I never realized just how...More
I was there with my 7 year old grand-daughter and though I found it to be an interesting place with so many different types of "artworks", she was somewhat
"bored". I ended up making up a "game" to make the experience more interesting.
The number of amazing works contained in this gem of a museum is mind-boggling! If you want a good handle on local talent (think Howard Pyle and any of the Wyeth family), this is the place. Not to mention the breathtaking works of art in...More
Beautiful grounds and galleries. Interesting collection and definitely worth the trip. I probably wouldn't have gone on my own (partly because there is so much to see and do in the general area) but due to a friend's wedding I was there. Not disappointed at...More

I'm planning to leave Wilmington around 1ish. I'm giving myself an hour for the drive (presumably taking I-95) but since I don't have a clue what Thanksgiving migration patterns look like in the area I just want to make sure I'm not setting myself up for a potential horror...More

On Wednesday afternoon, there will be traffic in every direction, but unless there is an accident or something causing a problem, it should not be a nightmare. An hour should be plenty of time.
Public transport / taxis to Del. Art Museum (3 Replies)
Can anyone tell me how to get from the Amtrak to the Delaware Art Museum and back by bus? Is there a reliable taxi service? If so, approximately what is the cost?

There's a cab stand right outside the station. According to fare finder it should be about $12. http://www.taxifarefinder.com/main.php?city=Wilmington-DE&from=Harry%27s+Seafood+Grill&to=Delaware+Art+Museum UBER operates in Wilmington now I beleive if that's an option
