Enjoyed visiting the Nanticoke Indian Museum!! Loved learning about the rich local history of the people who lived here and seeing some of their art, way of life, customs, and stories. Native culture is COOL!! I plan to visit again and hopefully attend their annual PowWow which is in September this year (2023).

This is an impressively stocked museum considering the size. From arrowheads to woven baskets this museum features the best of Delaware's indigenous artifacts.

Amazing museum! So many artifacts and history within, and Morningstar was there to explain and answer questions. Highly recommend a visit!
