Surprisingly good in a very small town
Feb 15, 2015 by: Oakfarm L from Timonium, Maryland
A nice, educational, well-designed brief treatment of the history and ecology of the southern end of the Eastern Shore, even if one of the Native American displays appears to be of an Indian from the Plains. Audio tour included. Pleasant, helpful staff. Special programs for the kids. You'd never think you were in a town of 4100 people. And there is a wonderful restaurant on the river right next door.
A Heritage Museum for The Delmarva Peninsula

This museum is a delight! The building has history too! Located at #2 Market Street in Pocomoke City this Museum offers something for children and adults. Well worth the trip off Rt. 50 to visit. Indian display, dugout canoe, duck carvings, replica steamship, NASA WALLOP'S ISLAND DISPLAY and videos - Well Done!
Good for children

We stopped at the Delmarva Discovery Center in Pocomoke City on the way home to Philadelphia from Chincoteague Island. This small facility offers a variety of different exhibits to guests ranging from a small aquarium tank to a NASA play center to an exhibit on Native Americans. For two adults, this wouldn't have been worth the price, as you can easily walk through everything in 30 minutes or less. However, for our 7-year niece, she found it to be quite a fun time. They offer scavenger hunts to keep the kids busy and interactive exhibits for children to touch and feel to learn hand on. Our niece definitely had a good time there.
Small but cool

Small for what you pay, but a great stop for the kids for an hour. They liked the beaver lodge and the touch tank. We'll go again!
An ambitious project for a small town

The Delmarva Discovery Center is a very modern sort of museum with a great blend of local history, lore, & science. This museum is only feet from the old shipbuilding businesses which were on the waterfront in Pocomoke City from about 1890 - 1920. Step into a ship built right into one room, and be awed by the tall aquarium that contains local fish! Summers find the museum busy with activities for youth, while during the school year there are bus loads of kids enjoying some hands-on education, not possible in the classroom. The museum is well managed and proudly supported by the Pocomoke community.
