Get in the Holiday Spirit at the Delaware Museum of Natural History in Wilmington

Planning a visit to the Delaware Museum of Natural History this month? Aim to stop by on a Saturday, because during the month of December, the Wilmington museum is hosting Merriment at the Museum. Held during regular museum hours and included in the admission price, this kid-friendly event promises holiday film screenings, holiday shopping at the gift shop, as well as special story times.

Merriment at the Museum is in addition to the Delaware Museum of Natural History's regular exhibits, all of which are interactive and educational. The permanent exhibits at the museum include the dinosaur gallery, displaying real dinosaur skeletons, and the hall of birds, which has information on how birds evolved from dinosaurs. In the fall and spring, visit the nature nook to explore natural animal habitats while walking through caves, checking out an eagle’s nest, and venturing through woodlands. And it’s hard to miss the giant squid that greets guests as they enter the museum.
