Thanksgiving Weekend Family Programming
Bring your family and friends to enjoy the holidays at Hagley. While in the Visitor Center, view the entries of the gingerbread house competition and try your hand at cookie decorating. Visit Eleutherian Mills Residence decorated for the holiday season featuring “The Magic of Miniatures”. Don’t forget to visit Workers’ Hill where you can sample cookies in the Gibbons House and write with a quill pen in the Sunday School. Included in admission and free for members. Use Hagley’s main entrance off Route 141 in Wilmington, Delaware.
In this walking tour of the powder yard, guests experience an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the black powder process and can try their hand at graining some powder. Reservations requested, call (302) 658-2400, ext. 261.
Cannon firings in the powder yards demonstrate how black powder was made and used.
See the museum in a different way during a Sunday Stroll- take a leisurely walk on areas of our property normally only accessible by bus.
At Bike & Hike & Brews, visitors can stroll, jog, or bike through areas of Hagley property normally closed to foot traffic.
Don’t miss Delaware’s best fireworks show! This members-only event is held each year, two Fridays in June. It is a spectacular evening of family fun.
