What To See

Because of continuing flood damage assessment, certain areas of Hagley are currently closed to the public. Visit the Hours & Tickets page (link) for details.

Hagley is a 235-acre estate with many outdoor exhibits and areas for visitors to explore.

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.
