Educational Programs

There are educational opportunities for everyone at The Lewes Historical Society! We offer a variety field trips for students in grades K-12. 

The Lewes Historical Society is also pleased to present a series of curriculum-based programs for the academic year. These programs were designed to meet the needs of today's busy teachers, providing them with hands-on, standards-based lessons for students in grades K-12.  

For the casual history buff, check out our History Happy Hours or our Lunch and Learn programs that allow you to kick back and enjoy a glass of wine or a light lunch while you listen to our spirited presenters share stories of Lewes's colorful past. If you are looking for a more in-depth experience, our Speaker Series allows you to take in a a formal lecture from a subject-matter expert.


We also offer internships for both undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in the field of public history.  Bring all your friends or gather a group and schedule a group tour to learn more about our historic buildings, our rich maritime history, or even take everyone on a Kayak adventure on the Delaware Bay.
