We had stopped to rest on a bench near the door of the museum, when a staff member came out to put up a sign that the museum was open. We decided to go in and were glad we did.
The young man at the front desk was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area and the artifacts of many kinds in the museum. It is marvelous to speak with someone who is so enthusiastic about his work! There are many interesting exhibits on both floors, and the gardens behind the very photogenic building are lovely, with the added bonus of very clean public bathrooms.

This museum has extraordinary architecture and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. That being said, the exhibits held my interest for no more than 20 minutes. The staff was friendly and willing to answer any questions posed by my husband.

Zwaanendael Museum is the must-see attraction in downtown Lewes, Del.

In 1631, the Dutch founded a settlement, Zwaanendael ("Swan Valley") on Lewes' current site. In 1931, Zwaanendael Museum was built to mark that settlement's 300th anniversary. In tribute to the Dutch, the museum was modeled on a former city hall in Hoorn, Netherlands. It includes many traditional Dutch design elements, such as terracotta tiles, stepped gables and colorful shutters. Look up to see the roof-riding statue of David Pietersen de Vries, who led the expedition that founded Zwaanendael.

TIPS:

--Admission to the museum's exhibits on local history, shipwrecks and lighthouse is free. Closed on Sundays and Mondays though.

--Be sure to walk around Zwaanendael Park and Herb Garden (see my review, "A little piece of Holland") and to visit the Zwaanendael Club just across Savannah Road (see my review, "Cute clubhouse").

The building's architecture was inspired by the town hall of Hoorn, North Holland, former seat of the Dutch West India Company which oversaw the trade in the Dutch colony of New Netherland, i.e. New York, New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania nd Delaware. The museum focuses on the significant archeological finds of De Braak, a late 18th century fighting sloop that was lost at sea near Lewes. Upstairs is an exhibit about railroads and their contribution to the economic development of rural Delaware. Almost no information about the ties between Lewes when it was Dutch Zwaanendael and the Netherlands.

Good but small museum. Knowledgeable docents on each floor. Free admission! This museum is run by State of Delaware. Educational use of our taxpayer dollars . The building exterior is very picturesque and very Dutch. The train and shipwreck information was cool. The maps of the area with train schedule information related good information on the growth of Delmarva. However it is so small I wouldn’t recommend a special trip. Don’t miss this if you are in Downtown Lewes and have any interest in seventeen and 18th century local history. We went through it thoroughly in the 45 minute tour time. Stairs and outdoor restrooms behind it were not ideal.

We dropped by for a private visit during the COVID 19 crisis. The team was excellent with great answers to some simple questions. The 2nd floor was closed, so we weren't able to see the full display.

The building and exhibits are a must visit doing a Cape May- Lewes Delaware getaway. The type of place that makes short trips interesting. Free admission (donations accepted) A proud, local contingent keeps this interesting and enjoyable attraction in top shape.

This was a stop of many touring with my in laws and we made a quick stop at the museum. It frames the early days of Lewes as an important maritime port and displays many artifacts from the De Braak.

I just happened to be here so I went in. There is much here in this little spot. Being one who loves trains and writes railroad articles, I saw the trains on display making my visit here more enjoyable. There are other things on display too.
