Wilmington, Delaware: 17th-Century Colony with Famed American-Art Museum

From its humble beginnings as a Swedish colony in the mid-1600s, Wilmington is steeped in a rich historical past. You’ll find this history preserved and celebrated throughout the city amongst the many museums and monuments. The Delaware Art Museum is home to a vast collection of American art, including many by Edward Hopper, John Sloan, and Howard Pyle. Pyle is also credited with having started the Brandywine School at the end of the 19th century, a local organization that helped usher in the golden age of American illustration. The nearby Delaware Contemporary is Delaware’s only contemporary art museum that showcases the works of local, regional, national, and international artists through compelling exhibitions and dynamic educational experiences. Immerse yourself in the Hagley Museum where you’ll tour the gardens, mansion, powder yards, and exhibits on the former E.I. DuPont family estate.

If it’s entertainment you’re after, look no further than The Playhouse on Rodney Square. This century-old theater located at Hotel Du Pont and run by the Grand Opera House presents Broadway shows and musicals, stand-up comedy acts, and concerts by touring artists. Within a few blocks discover The Queen Theatre where you’ll find even more live music, or the Grand Opera House to take in symphony orchestras, opera performances, dance, stand-up comedians, and concerts. Get your feet in on the action by strolling the Wilmington Riverwalk along the Delaware River; a 1.3-mile riverfront path that leads to the area’s best outdoor attractions including a beer garden, children’s museum, and an IMAX theater to name a few.

The room was great, very clean and more spacious than anyone actually needs. The hotel itself is gorgeous and so full of history. We will definitely be back! The staff was friendly, from valet to the front desk staff, to the staff in Le Cavalier. Very convenient to have DeCo Hall (nice food court) in the building as well.

This hotel is STUNNING! We walked across the street for dinner at Tonic Seafood & Steakhouse and had brunch in the restaurant downstairs the next morning. Loved our stay.
