Very nice museum, including a great sculpture garden. But... the Chihulis are not displayed in a way so you can view their full beauty. Otherwise, well worth a visit.

This is a relatively unknown jewel in the Wilmington area. Great Howard Pyle collection! Forgive the museum administration for their past errors and see some great art in a very pleasant building!

The museum has a large collection of Pre-Raphealite artists that are quite interesting and exellent examples of the school of art. But my favorite exhibition were the illustrations of Howard Pyle and others of that golden age of book illustration.
