Nanticoke Indian Museum

Search Millsboro Delaware

Housed in what was once an old dilapidated school house from the 1920s, this is the only Native American museum in Delaware. The Nanticoke Indian Museum opened in 1984 and has given the tribe a means of preserving not only items belonging to its ancestors, but also artifacts such as arrowheads and stones that have been unearthed during the past century. By examining the display cases, visitors can understand how the Nanticoke people lived in generations past. Hammers, stones, arrowheads, pots and tools illustrate their reliance on farming, hunting and fishing. Perhaps the most stunning items on display are the clovis points and drill heads that date back to before 10,000 B.C. Other artifacts in the museum are more than 1,000 years old.
