An amazing small museum that has impressive collections. Good specialization and comprehensive exhibits. Children room is lacking but a major expansion has been announced. Good sculpture garden.

Great Gift Shop for Christmas

My girlfriend dragged me here. I didn't even know this place existed. I found it very interesting. It was bigger than I expected and beyond my expectations!

John Marquette

Just leaving the Delaware Art Museum is the "Our America/Nuestra América" exhibition of Latin American art; remaining is the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood collection which makes this place worth a visit.

First time there and it was beyond my expectations. Bigger than expected and the front desk lady was very kind. Gave me a map and explained the layout of the musuem. Art was beautiful with modern art on the second level. Will be back for sure to check out the sculpture garden !

While not as glorious as big city counterparts in Philadelphia or Washington, this small town museum has an impressive collection. We happened to be in the area on a day when admission was free (Sunday August 5th). Parking is free and the snack bar is very reasonably priced. It was a very nice way to spend a few hours.

Madeline Trujillo

A very horrible experience. It doesn't even deserve 1 star. From the moment we walked in we were followed around by security and staffed. Don't touch the pictures, stay 4 feet away from the drawings, no drinks or food allowed, stop playing with the spinner because of security reasons. This was our first time here and it is our last. I really felt that because we are latinos we were being targeted. I want everyone to know how bad we felt and how disrespectful we were treated. Maybe if we were white we would be treated differently.

Very nice place

Mario GORUNOVA

Fun festival, easy to find location.

Erick Hoxter

Great flow from room to room - tons of historic value & education. Lovely gift shop and a simple but unique walking labyrinth that is truly calming.

Kim Naugle

I didn't even know this place existed. While not as large as museums in Philadelphia or New York City, it was still larger than I expected.

I really enjoyed this museum and I feel it deserves a higher rating. No, it isn’t a giant museum and the works are pretty specific and limited in genre, but wow, they had some great stuff! I loved the Pyle rooms. This was a discovery of this artist for me and I love him now! I also really love the Pre-Raphaelite artworks (with the red haired beauties!). 2 hours wasn’t enough time for me. I missed a couple of rooms and could have used another half hour but I got kicked out at 4 when they closed (they really should consider staying open till 5 like most museums!). The special exhibit of juried artists was also fabulous (recyled material artworks).

Never been here but they say it's cool

The Delaware Art Museum has the largest collection of Pre-Raphaelite art outside the U.K. and it is exquisite. Dante Rossetti's unfinished work, "Found," which he considered one of his most important, is on display. The museum hosts other collections and is small enough to be enjoyed in one visit. The grounds are beautiful as well. If you love the Pre-Raphelites you have to visit this museum.

Jon Sheahan

Very nice for the price. Took Mom out for the afternoon. 10/10 would go again.

Christina Tabor

I have been taking a pottery/ceramics class here for a while now. It's wonderful.

Rosa Godinez

Went here for an event that my childs school had. I would advice you only use cash when purchasing something from here. The lady that was on register at the food court had an attitude the whole time and when checking my bank statement I saw that they charged my card three times for 1 purchase I made. Other than that lady the rest of the staff was very helpful and friendly

Julie Jackson

I like the collections and the traveling exhibits. The museum store always has many things I want. The sculpture garden and wooded grounds are lovely.

Had a very negative experience with my 3 year old daughter today. We were there for the story time and she was not able to pay attention, was running everywhere and she took off her shoes. As I was leaving a security guard said that she needed to have her shoe on: I was just about to leave. I decided I wanted my $5 back: the woman at the desk took 3 phone calls as I was waiting and my daughter ran around some more. The security guard was not pleased and continued to tell me that my daughter was not acting appropiately. I asked to speak to his supervisor and that man started to be mad at me: I was loosing my temper. Finally a person: Brendan was not trying to give me a hard time- he was kind, considerate and walked me to my car, helped get her shoes on ect. If your child is not perfect don’t bring them to story hour on Friday. This only for kids that act like robots. This is not for kids with any disabilities or abilities: they just need to sit there. And that not for my daughter. Hello people- sensitivity training- stop amping it up. When a mother is struggling with her daughter: don’t make it harder on her. Don’t have an ongoing event for 2 year olds and expect them to act like adults. The last thing a mother needs is to hear a security guard tell her that her kids needs to act their age when the kid is 3. Hello- she was acting her age. And please encourage parents instead of discourage them. Good luck!

Such a positive influence on the community!

We did a day trip from DC over the weekend. At the time of our visit, there were street closures surrounding the museum. While there are detour signs, there was no clear way to access the museum--there was a single sign that said "Art Museum". After calling the museum and getting a less than helpful response to take Bancroft "straight through," we circled back to the street and realized our error. The reason for the confusion was due to a "Road Closed" sign that was placed on one side of Bancroft Parkway (a two-lane road in a residential area), leading us to believe that the entire street was closed. However, if you continued onto the unpaved road, you will be able to reach the museum. Admission to the museum is $12 and parking is free. For art aficionados, the lure is their collection of Pre-Raphaelite art, and early 19th century American illustrator Howard Pyle. Don't miss the murals of Howard Pyle, which are on display until the end of December. Truly beautiful and one of my favorite parts of our experience. We were able to view the entirety of the museum in about 2-2.5 hours, but there are public tours available at 1 and 2 pm. Having visited all the Smithsonian art galleries as well as the DIA and the MET, I appreciated the intimacy of a smaller space and the ability to view the art without feeling like you're on top of other patrons. We were able to view everything at a relaxed pace. A hidden gem in Wilmington.

Good for the most part

My boyfriend was kicked out completely just for having a water bottle that could’ve been discarded if they just asked. Security is really wack. It makes us art students not want to come at all.

This is an excellent small museum with one of the best illustration collections I've seen. It also features a well executed sculpture garden. I was glad I took the time to visit, I will return and I recommend it as a museum that others should visit.

Excellent, intimate museum. Holds perhaps the best American collection of Pre-Raphaelite art in its collection, as well as works from notable artists of the Delaware Valley. Worth a visit if in Wilmington.

Jes love

We have been to a few bigger art museums but we were impressed with the art displayed at this museum. The staff was very friendly. We went on a Thurs 4-8 and it was free with live music and people outside relaxing. The location is beautiful. We were able to see Civil Rights inspired exhibits that are ending soon and really impressed by those exhibits. The gift store is great. We will def return and enjoyed our time.

We were visiting from Chicago on a business trip, looking for free things to do in the evenings. We appreciated DAM having free admission (thank you, DuPont) Thursday evening -- it's a lovely little art museum, not too large. We walked around the entire first floor in about 1.5 hours. The displays are beautiful and they have a nice selection of American Art. Their grounds are lovely too. Highly recommended!

Peyton Lewis

Free admission on Sundays. Have visited many times and always enjoy my visit.
