200 Hagley Creek Road
Wilmington, DE 19807
Hagley is the site of the gunpowder works founded by E. I. du Pont in 1802 along the banks of the Brandywine River. This indoor/outdoor museum includes restored mills, a workers' community, and the ancestral home and gardens of the du Pont family. Watch a gunpowder explosion and demonstrations inside a 19th-century machine shop powered by water. Stroll through the formal French garden on your way to a Georgian-style home filled with furnishings and collections of American folk art and treasured family pieces. Get inspired by Nation of Inventors, an exhibit about a unique collection of 19th-century patent models from everyday inventors.
