Delmarva Discovery Center
Activities: The Discovery Center offers tours for group of all ages. A variety of art classes, lectures and programs are offered throughout the year. In 2010 a new 6,000 gallon freshwater aquarium tank designed to look like the underwater world of the Pocomoke River is being installed (check website for installation progress). April through October a visit to the Delmarva Discovery Center's exhibits can be paired with a guided cruise on the Pocomoke River with the Bay Queen. The Bay Queen leaves the Pocomoke Docks at 1:00pm Thursday through Sunday.
Educational Programs
Facilities: The Delmarva Discovery Center is a 16,000 square foot, 1920’s era building and houses the exhibits, a Museum Store, classroom, and administrative space. Visitors can extend their visit to Pocomoke by strolling through Cypress Park or walking through the Cypress Swamp on the Discovery Nature Trail. Also, within walking distance are the Sturgis One Room School House, The historic Mar-Va Theatre and the Costen House.
