 The Iron Hill Museum: Science And History   Capital Development Campaign

  Originally opened in 1966 by Robert L. Melson, and operated by the Delaware Academy of Science since 1968, the Iron Hill Museum is one of the best local repositories of historical information about the Iron Hill region, as well as wildlife, ecology, archaeology, and the natural sciences.

  Located within one of the last surviving DuPont Schools, we are currently building a new facility to house our collections. When it is finished, the D.A.S. plans to restore the schoolhouse to its original state, that it may serve as an enduring monument to the legacy of the DuPont Schools, and as a center for historical research on that era of Delaware's history.

Volunteering and Jobs

Volunteers make the work of Iron Hill Museum possible, both in dealing with the public, youth programs, and many aspects of museum operations
