Dinosaurs are among all the things that spark a child's imagination and curiosity the most. For decades, the Delaware Museum of Natural History's dinosaurs have fascinated thousands of children (and adults too). This year, we're closed for major renovations to our galleries. When the Museum reopens in 2022, the Delaware Museum of Nature and Science
will include an expanded PaleoZone featuring species that lived right here in the Mid-Atlantic United States during the Cretaceous Period, including a skeleton of the fearsome terrestrial Dryptosaurus. By donating through Do More 24 Delaware, you'll help bring the Dryptosaurus to Delaware, and fascinate a whole new generation of our children.
Our transformation has already begun—and you are invited to be part of it.

About Delaware Museum of Natural History
Mission: The Delaware Museum of Natural History's building is closed in 2021 for major renovations, but we're active in the community and are hosting events this year with our partners at Winterthur. The Museum will reopen in early 2022 as the Delaware Museum of Nature and Science.
Our mission: to investigate nature and science, preserve and interpret our collections, conduct scientific research, and inspire people of all ages to a lifetime of exploration and discovery.
Through this mission, we strive to achieve our purpose: to help develop a caring society that respects and values our planet.
Our building is closed to visitors, but our doors are open online.
