We visited The Hagley Museum on Thursday July 29th. During the Summer they had a program where on Thursday's you could visit all day for $1 per person. There are 3 levels in the museum building which offer interesting exhibits for all ages, about the DuPont Family, inventions, and the development of industry through the 1800's and 1900's. The tour of the mansion and offices is very informative and extensive, with many tour guides who will answer questions from even the smallest guests.
The gardens are beautiful, and there are several places to picnic. I would also recommend checking out Workers Hill, where there are several demonstrations, including a steam powered generator, and a school house where the kids can learn to write with quill pens, and about schooling in the 1800's.
We will be visiting again soon!
