Workers' World Tour

In this ninety-minute walking tour guests will discover the fascinating stories of the immigrant workers who lived along the Brandywine and worked for the DuPont Company in the black powder manufactory. This is the only tour that offers in-depth commentary on Workers’ Hill. Each guest will be assigned the name of a person who worked in the powder yard or lived in the workers’ community. During the tour the guests will learn about the role their person played. The tour involves walking on uneven ground.
$14 fee includes admission to the museum before or after the tour, including dramatic roll mill demonstrations, gunpowder explosions, and the whirring, belt-driven nineteenth-century Machine Shop.
Fifteen to forty people.
Offered April 1 through November 30.
