The Delaware Art Museum is an art museum located on the Kentmere Parkway in Wilmington, Delaware, which holds a collection of more than 12,000 objects. The museum was founded in 1912 as the Wilmington Society of the Fine Arts in honor of the artist Howard Pyle. The collection focuses on American art and illustration from the 19th to the 21st century, and on the English Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood movement of the mid-19th century.

The museum building was expanded and renovated in 2005 and includes a 9-acre (36,000 m2) Sculpture Park, the Helen Farr Sloan Library and Archives, studio art classes, a children's learning area, as well as a cafe and museum store.

  • Great collections and exhibitions. Free on Sundays. Good restaurants nearby, so make a date of it! Safe area and free parking.

  • I've been coming here since I was a kid. Most recently I attended a reception for an exhibit for the Delaware Women's Hall of Fame and toured the Tiffany glass exhibit. This museum isn't a full day...

  • Such a gorgeous museum! I was only able to visit for a little over an hour, and I barely covered the first section. Clearly a lot of love and care goes into these exhibits! And they took care to make sure all the proper Covid protocols were followed. I cannot wait until I can visit again.
  • Exquisite and lovely museum. Love taking my teenage kids here, they love art. Great for a rainy day
