Join us at the Zwaanendael Museum to learn about Lewes-area maritime history and tour the facility, which features the hull of the British warship, HMS DeBraak.

The event will begin with a lecture at the Museum at 9:00 a.m. provided by the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs. Then, guests will be transported to the DeBraak hull facility in nearby Cape Henlopen State Park for a tour of the surviving section of the ship’s hull.

Come discover one of Delaware's little known treasures and mingle with fellow Blue Hens afterwards at Irish Eyes in Lewes!
