This place is wonderful! I grew up in NJ and didn't even know it was there. The staff are very knowledgeable and happy to tell you about everything. Great walking paths and lots of information. Got a membership so we can go again soon!
$15 entrance fee allows you spend all day at this wonderful museum complex. Staff is top notch, lots to see, great exhibits with staff that knows how to narrate the story of DuPont's black powder in the US. Large spralinng facility with continuous short bus service; great walk as well if you so choose. We spent 5 hours and did not see everything. Well worth the time and small fee. You won't be disappointed. Get there early!
