The Delaware History Museum, located in a renovated art-deco Woolworth store, features three galleries of changing interactive exhibits on Delaware history, including displays of rare items of everyday life, costumes, children's toys, regional decorative arts, and paintings. A nine-foot-tall folk-art statue of George Washington greets you at the door of the large gift shop specializing in Delaware handcrafted items, and souvenirs.
