We were visiting from Chicago on a business trip, looking for free things to do in the evenings. We appreciated DAM having free admission (thank you, DuPont) Thursday evening -- it's a lovely little art museum, not too large. We walked around the entire first floor in about 1.5 hours. The displays are beautiful and they have a nice selection of American Art. Their grounds are lovely too. Highly recommended!
Nice arts. Free parking. Spent good time with kids. Terrace with enough chairs and tables for food. Free day on every Sunday.
