Milford Museum

Located in Milford's original Post Office Building, the Milford Museum offers visitors a look inside Milford's fascinating history dating back to 1787. Exhibits highlight the role the town played throughout the development of our nation's history such as the Civil War and World War II. Walking Tours and Museum Tours available. Housing over 13,000 artifacts, the Milford Museum is a treasure trove of stories. Each collections item tells its own story about the history of Milford, Delaware and its surrounding areas. Within its walls, the Milford Museum holds many exhibits, ranging from shipbuilding, medical, military, and so many more. Some exhibits are temporary, and will change on a rotating basis. We acknowledge that the Milford Museum stands upon the land of the Lenni Lenape, who used the Mispillion River that runs through the town as a source for fishing, as well as the forests in the area for hunting.
