All admission fees, as well as a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each quilt, benefit the Museum.
Surf Through Time!
Welcome to the on-line tour of the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village. As you wander through the exhibit building and Loockerman Landing Village, you will find that Delaware's farmers and their communities forged technological advances with ingenuity and a sense of community out of necessity. Here is the evidence of the so-called simple life... a life of sharing, invention, back breaking work, and compassion for the land and the people around them.
Explore the Main Exhibit Hall and the technological advances made by Delawareans and the industries they founded, made flourish, and in some cases, lost. Use the navigation to the left to focus on the different aspects of life represented in the Museum.
Move outside to Loockerman Landing Village. This representation of a rural village in 1890s allows the visitor to wander through a community frozen in time. Visit the store, whose proprietor has just stepped out; the farmhouse with the table set for the evening meal; the schoolhouse, where lessons have been interrupted for the day...perhaps by a special meeting at the church? Walk through the life of a Delaware farmer on the cusp of a new century...
Now, surf through the exhibit, Your Food, Our Farms, a special online exhibit funded by the Delaware Industrial History Initiative of the Delaware Humanities Forum. Your Food, Our Farms seeks to connect us all—as food consumers—with the industry that supplies this, our most basic need.
