Join us as we celebrate the opening of our new permanent exhibit!
Join us on Wednesday, June 21st from 5:00-7:00 PM as we officially open our new permanent exhibit "Wilmington-Industrial Powerhouse". Throughout much of the 19th century, Wilmington’s Christina Riverfront led the nation in the construction of iron-hulled ships and wooden rail cars. We pay homage to Wilmington’s incredible industrial heritage – to the city that built 10,000 ships and 30,000 railcars with this powerful new exhibit.
The event will feature light refreshments, followed by a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony.
Be one of the first to see our beautiful new Riverfront Room exhibit!
$25 for non-members
$20 for members
