At Hagley, we invite people of all ages to investigate and experience the unfolding history of American business, technology, and innovation, as well as its impact on the world, at the historic DuPont powder yards on the banks of the Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware. The museum serves as an example of early American industry and includes restored mills, a workers' community, and the ancestral home and gardens of the DuPont family.
With a sprawling museum documenting one of the most successful American businesses and a world-renowned research library focusing on the history of American business and enterprise, there is no better location than Hagley for people of all ages to find inspiration and explore our nation’s history of innovation.
