Zwaanendael Museum Is One Of The Strangest Places You Can Go In Delaware

In the town of Lewes sits a building that may seem unusual, maybe a little out of place to some. This building is the Zwaanendael Museum and it is fashioned in an architectural style meant to commemorate Delaware’s first European colony of Swanendael which was settled by the Dutch in 1631. But more alluring than the architecture is what’s inside the museum – unique artifacts you won’t see anywhere else, one of which will have you staring in disbelief.
