The Delaware Agricultural Museum honors the state’s extensive farm history with a collection of 12,000 artifacts, rotating exhibitions, and a full-scale reconstruction of a 19th-century rural village. In the main exhibit hall, visitors can peruse Powering Inventions to admire a lineup of authentic tractors and trace the progression of agricultural innovations from the man-powered hay rake to the horse-powered karaoke machine. The interactive Touch of History room gives kids a hands-on history lesson while they climb on a buggy, conduct a band with instruments found on a farm, and learn how to weave and quilt, and rotating exhibits give guests an eclectic taste of topics such as forest history and quilting.

Visitors can then step outside and through a conveniently placed wormhole to journey through time to Loockerman Landing, an authentic recreation of a turn-of-the-century rural hamlet. Explore the church, store, and farmhouse, many of which are original or restored structures, or simply meander through the town, where guests feed the museum's four resident chickens, enjoy the outdoors, or wax poetic about what life was like before computers and diamond-encrusted wooden teeth.

It was a great time! My 2 year old enjoyed the train exhibit and Lulu the pig. He didn't want to leave.
