Join and Explore!


Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19, Hagley's membership office will be closed until May 15.  Any members who renew their membership during this time will receive a 16-month membership in appreciation for your ongoing support.  There will be some delay in sending out membership cards and Hagley will work diligently to keep all members informed once the membership office is fully up and running.  Please remain safe.

A Hagley Membership can pay for itself by your second visit. Unlimited free admission is one of the many benefits that give our members and guests the chance to discover innovation and science along the Brandywine.

With Hagley’s Smithsonian Affiliate Membership, you get two great memberships in one! Upgrade your membership for $20. These benefits are free with Patron, Sponsor, and Benefactor memberships. Enjoy all the benefits of Hagley membership along with the wonderful Smithsonian Affiliate benefits, which include a one-year subscription to Smithsonian magazine, store and travel discounts, and much more! Click here for a complete listing.

We also offer our members Delaware’s best fireworks. This members-only event is held each year, two Fridays in June. It is a spectacular evening of family fun for a reasonable price.

New programs connect you to a community of members who share your interests. Members can explore our walking tours, visit the E. I. du Pont Residence and garden, attend lectures, and enjoy our annual antique car show and craft fair. All for free!

If you have children or grandchildren ten years of age and younger, join our Powder Keg Kids club. Throughout the year you can participate in hands-on science programs at Science Saturdays, Invention Convention, NatureFest, and Hagley Youth Leadership programs. All for free!

Membership dues at all levels support Hagley Museum and Library’s year-round family programs, our 235-acre site along the Brandywine River, and museum and library collections care and access.
