This is indeed another of the pride and joys in Pocomoke! (I shudder to think how many memberships I may have bought by now if my son were still a young boy.) Children and adults will enjoy it greatly!
The bear was the first thing I saw. I knew absolutely nothing about bears being on the Eastern Shore (or don't remember) and unless it's Yogi Bear and Boo Boo I don't want to know too much else. He's a little fuzzy in this photo but he is beautiful.
There are also hands-on learning stations for anyone that wants that experience.
A steamship gives anyone the opportunity to go aboard, walk through and even go to the top deck. The setting around the steamship is quite in line with what would be done during its use many years ago.
The Delmarva Discovery Center truly IS a "showcase of the regions cultural and environmental heritage".
And if you were born and raised on the Eastern Shore it is YOUR cultural and environmental heritage that is showcased there. Spend the time and the money to see it. Most of you will be able to identify with all of the exhibits and you will be amazed at the beauty of it all stretched out under one roof.
An excellant way to see the Eastern Shore without being bothered by the summer heat, humidity and bugs. There's also no marshy smell.
And you might just learn something new!
Sleepovers and birthday parties are welcomed there too! For more information call the Delmarva Discovery Center - 410-957-9933 or go to http://www.delmarvadiscoverycenter.org/ The center also has a page on Facebook with tons of photographs and information. The website and the facebook page will enable you to be constantly updated. And pass the word around ~ The DDC is looking for volunteers. If you are interested give Brian a call.
If you have never visited the Eastern Shore and are planning to be in the area I would certainly reccommend the Delmarva Discovery Center to be the best museum to visit to get good lesson about the surrounding area.
Thank you so very much Brian Garrett for allowing me to visit the Delmarva Discovery Center. I am impressed and it is quite plain to see that great amounts of hard work and time were taken to make the center the showcase it is. Everyone that had a hand in making the DDC the showcase it is should be very proud. I will be back to visit very soon.
Don't forget: VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED !

Less than 24 hours after The Baltimore Sun published a story about the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum's year-long search for the owner of a rare and valuable baseball card, the owner has surfaced.
A man identifying himself as Glenn Davis of Bethany Beach, Del., contacted the museum -- and the newspaper -- Tuesday to say he was the owner of the 1914 Baltimore News Babe Ruth rookie card.
It's one of the most valuable cards on the market, with an estimated value of $500,000. No more than 11 of the cards are believed to exist.
Although the museum on Emory Street has displayed the card for 12 years, officials there learned only recently that the value of the card had skyrocketed.
That prompted plans for a prominent new display of the card and a renewed search for Davis, who called the museum and spoke to executive director Mike Gibbons.
"He told me if it were up to him, he'd leave the card with the museum," said Gibbons, who is certain the man he spoke to is the owner of the card. "But he was going to talk to his wife about it, and he said his wife might have other ideas.
"He promised he'd get back to us by the end of the week with his decision."
In an e-mail to The Baltimore Sun, Davis said: "Well, you found me. I didn't think it was possible in today's world to hide! I was not aware that moving to Bethany Beach, Del. would be better than the witness protecting plan!"
Davis thanked the newspaper for publishing the article, "which [led] to my getting the word regarding the museum's attempt to reach me."
He did not return phone calls from the newspaper seeking further comment. According to Gibbons, Davis was on a business trip to Atlanta.
The rare 1914 Babe Ruth rookie card -- along with 14 others featuring Ruth's teammates on the Baltimore Orioles of the International League, was originally donated to the museum by Glenn Davis' father, Richard Davis, in 1998.
After Richard Davis died, Glenn Davis renewed an agreement in 2001 allowing the museum to display the cards on a long-term basis, with no time frame for their return.
But when the Ruth rookie card was appraised last year for $500,000 -- surpassing the Honus Wagner tobacco card as the priciest on the market -- museum officials decided to feature it in a new "blockbuster" display on baseball card collecting.
Before doing that, though, they wanted to contact Davis about their plans and make sure he approved.
"I look forward to getting up to Baltimore to visit and see the card in its new display," said Davis in his e-mail to The Baltimore Sun. "It has been a while."
