    Default Museums, Museums, Go!

    Have you ever noticed how many museums there are to see in Delaware?

    Many are free or low admission and present a world of history and information for our homeschool children to absorb. Chances are if you need to find a " hands on" for almost any aspect of homeschooling you can find a museum to fill that need.

    I'm going to post some here but would greatly appreciate it if you would add your favorite, or tell us about your experiences.

    Thanks!!
