Skylight Atrium & Discovery Gallery

First impressions are everything. Prepare to be amazed.

The Skylight Atrium sets the stage for a dramatic experience as visitors walk into the new Delaware Museum of Nature and Science.

This bright central space will captivate guests with bold visual interpretations of the Tree of Life, depicting the evolution of organisms over billions of years and the relationships between them in increasingly diverse branches. Moveable exhibit cases explore evolution and natural selection concepts.

Adjacent to the Atrium, the Bill & Denise Spence Discovery Gallery provides a welcoming atmosphere with experiential opportunities to explore concepts introduced throughout the Museum. This flexible space can rotate awe-inspiring displays, highlight temporary exhibits with community partners, and host special events.
