, , , , , , ,

We are excited to announce that our next big exhibit will feature life and culture in Smyrna and Clayton from the turn of the twentieth century through 1920. We are looking for local items from that time period to add into our display. Photographs, clothing, books, letters from WWI, sheet music, etc. If you have any items available for loan, please contact us at the Smyrna Museum. 302.653.1320.

Our “Civil War in Smyrna” exhibit will run through May 2015 to coincide with all of the great Civil War events happening around the State as we wind down our Sesquicentennial program.

As always, our exhibits and tours are free to the public and family friendly! We are open Saturdays from 10 am – 1 pm.
