Hagley is closed through mid-March 2021.
See you in the Spring!
Beginning January 4, 2021, Hagley Museum will close to visitation - including walking on the property - to continue an electrical project on the lower property requiring extensive road excavation. It is anticipated we will be able to reopen in mid-March.

Located on 235 acres along the banks of the Brandywine, Hagley is the site of the gunpowder works founded by E.I. du Pont in 1802. This example of early American industry features indoor and outdoor exhibitions, including restored mills, a workers community, and the ancestral home and garden of the du Pont family.
Plan to spend 2-3 hours on our property if you wish to do a guided tour, see our demonstrations and exhibitions, and explore the grounds.
See exhibitions and demonstrations below for more details.
