The Delaware Museum of Natural History enhances the visitor experience by hosting several traveling exhibits each year. This added benefit in the spacious Ederic Exhibit Hall broadens the scope of natural history content beyond what is covered in the Museum’s permanent displays. The changing material inspires specialized programming in the Education Division, with accompanying choices in summer camp and Young Explorers classes.
