DuPont 200th Anniversary Museum Display


WILMINGTON, DE.- - The 200th Anniversary celebration for DuPont continues with an exhibit at the Hagley Museum in Wilmington, Delaware. The museum is located on the banks of the Brandywine River, site of the first DuPont powder mill in 1802. Hagley honors 200 years of DuPont innovation with the new exhibit "DuPont Science and Discovery" where kids of all ages can learn how DuPont products have changed the world in which we live.

In addition, Jeff Gordon's #24 DuPont Chevrolet will be on display. Visitors can sit inside the car and learn how more than 50 of DuPont's innovations have transformed the world of motorsports. The DuPont Chevrolet in the exhibit was a stock car that raced at Dover Downs in September 2000. Kevin Lepage was the driver and the car was wrecked during the race. The car was a Ford sponsored by TV Guide. It was later re-skinned as a Chevrolet and painted in the familiar DuPont colors for the Hagley Museum exhibit. Visitors can open the door and sit in the driver's seat. The race car exhibit is accompanied by a pre-recorded interview with Jeff Gordon.

The museum is located off of Route 141 in Wilmington, Delaware. Admission to the entire museum is $11 for adults, $9 for seniors and students, $4 for children six to fourteen, and free for children five and under, or $30 for a household. The museum is open seven days a week from 9:30am - 4:30pm. For more information about the museum and/or the DuPont exhibit, please call (302) 658-2400.
