Delaware’s State museums are open with tours that allow visitors to experience the history of the First State while continuing to take all recommended steps to safeguard public health.
In keeping with Gov. Carney’s COVID-19 guidance, four museums administered by the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs — the John Dickinson Plantation, Johnson Victrola Museum, Old State House and Zwaanendael Museum — are accepting reservations for tours. The New Castle Court House Museum is temporarily closed until Spring 2022 due to the installation of a fire suppression system.
Tours are 45 minutes in length in order to allow for proper cleaning between tour groups according to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Masks are required when inside state buildings for all people over the age of two, regardless of vaccination status. Admission is free.
Reservations are available only by calling the museum that you wish to visit (see list below). The health and safety of the division’s visitors and staff is our highest priority. With that in mind, we ask that all visitors follow the following rules and guidelines:
