Santa at Hagley
Santa and Mrs. Claus stop by Hagley for a socially distant visit in the warmth of the Gibbons House kitchen along Workers’ Hill!
First, visit the Brandywine Manufacturers’ Sunday School on Workers' Hill, where children may write a holiday wish list for Santa.
Next door in the Gibbons House, Santa and Mrs. Claus will make appearances, and guests are welcome to take selfies. Children may drop their wish list into a bucket and Santa will respond to their caregiver via email. One of their elves will be handing out individually wrapped cookies to good girls and boys.
Gingerbread houses will be on display at the bottom of Workers’ Hill in the Millwright Shop for Hagley’s third-annual Gingerbread House Contest.
Across the road in the Wheelwright Shop, there is another photo opportunity in Santa’s Workshop Selfie Station.
Activities are included with admission and free for members. Use Hagley’s main entrance off Route 141 in Wilmington, Delaware.
Families can take a hayride along the Brandywine to experience the beautiful fall foliage in the Powder Yard. Guests can create fall-themed crafts, and see a gunpowder explosion, roll mill in action, and working nineteenth-century machines.
Have a blast during your visit to Hagley with cannon firings in the Hagley Powder Yard!
Free admission for current military members, veterans, and their families.
Invisible magnetic fields can be used in so many ways. Build a magnet toy and tinker with the force! Visitors of all ages are invited to discover solutions to science and engineering challenges at Science Saturday.
Bring your family and friends to enjoy the holidays at Hagley.
