Visit

Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame

The Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame celebrates the history of sports and people who excelled in sports in the First State.  A visit to the museum will take you through the decades of sports in Delaware, from the first athletic competition of the Lenni Lenape Indians up through the current time.  You’ll also learn about those who starred in many different sports, including baseball, football, basketball, racing, and even a section for Special Olympics in Delaware.

Memorabilia, artifacts, photos and the stories of Delawareans and others who gave the First State its rich sports history are prominently displayed at the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame.

The Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame is open from April through October. The Hall of Fame opens 2 hours before each Wilmington Blue Rocks home game and closes 30 minutes before first pitch.

Admission is free for individuals but donations are appreciated and suggested.  Group tours are ALWAYS available, but must be set up in advance. Please email us at desports@desports.org to arrange for a tour. There is a small charge for group tours.
