For the child who believes milk comes from the grocery store instead of a cow, for the woman who remembers using a cornsheller on her grandmother's farm, the family who takes twentieth century technological advances and the farmer for granted; the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village offers a memorable and educational experience. By preserving the quickly fading agricultural heritage of Delaware and the Delmarva Peninsula, the museum stands as an important legacy for future generations.
Vision Statement: The Delaware Agricultural Museum & Village seeks to foster a society that understands the impact of agriculture on the shaping of our nation's history and its impact on our daily lives.
Mission Statement: The Delaware Agricultural Museum & Village utilizes its collections, historic buildings, exhibitions, and on-going research program to communicate to the public America's agricultural heritage, specifically that of Delaware and the Delmarva Peninsula from its earliest history. It achieves this through collections, preservation, exhibits, and educational programs and initiatives.
The Delaware Agricultural Museum is now a proud partner of Delaware Children in Nature! We hope to to help them reach their mission which is "To improve environmental literacy, create opportunities for children to participate in outdoor experiences, promote healthy lifestyles, and provice better access to green space through schools and community programs."
