Educational Programs

There are educational opportunities for everyone at The Lewes Historical Society! 

Field trips for grades K-12, to the Lewes Historical Society's campus buildings include sites such as the 1898 Midway Schoolhouse, The 1850’s Old Doctor’s Office, and the Thompson Country Store are available with advanced reservations ONLY, seasonally from April through October.

Visitation to the Lewes History Museum and the historic Cannonball House's War of 1812 Exhibit are available all year round and are included in the tour. (Please check specific building times and dates, in advance of arrival, for openings.)

Cost is based on a per student rate of $5 and space and availability is limited, payable in advance (no cash exchanged at this time). Parents, teachers, and chaperones are admitted at no charge. For the safety and comfort of your classmates and the integrity of our historic sites and museums, larger groups will be divided into 15 students per group, with individual docents leading each.



For more information, or to schedule a field trip experience, please contact Lewes Historical Society's Director of Education, Marcos Salaverria.
