Explore Delaware Water Gap's fascinating history as one of the top US tourist destinations a century ago, as well as an art gallery showcasing some of the best art in the Poconos!

The Dutot Museum & Gallery is housed in a charming brick schoolhouse (circa 1850). On the second floor is a museum which displays and interprets artifacts pertaining to the history of the town. A video presentation is shown to visitors. Among the many displays are native American artifacts, Kentucky rifles, a drum from the war of 1812, land deeds and documents dating back to 1707, and resort memorabilia with pictures of famous visitors such as Fred Astaire and President Theodore Roosevelt. Also on the second floor is a recreated old time school room, with walls lined with class pictures from its 99 years as a school. You can still ring the original school bell in the belfry.

The first floor features an art gallery with rotating exhibits of high caliber regional art. A second building contains a restored 1926 American LaFrance fire truck and other antiques.

Art history of the area.

The second floor is the museum and contains much history of the Water Gap. Original documents, books, signs, post cards and instruments. It is worth a 1 hour visit.

Really two attractions in one. Downstairs is local art and has some nice execution by the artists. Upstairs is a museum on the local delaware gap area which has many interesting items to read. Would not suggest bringing kids as too old time look at displays no up-to-date electronic displays of items.

Was here for an art show, very packed and sweaty due to lack of a/c. Couldn't stay long as a result but enjoyed all the work on display. Look forward to visiting again at a less busier time.

We have a/c on both floors. You came on the evening when our museum hosts the opening of our town's annual jazz festival weekend with a music themed art show. This is traditionally our busiest time, and that day was unusually hot and humid. The air conditioning was working, but could not compensate for the crowd that filled our gallery.... More
