Review our Important Tips for School Programs.
Winterthur is excited to provide free on-site school programs through June 30, 2023, thanks to generous support from Corteva Agriscience.
These programs are made possible, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on DelawareScene.com. In celebration of 50 years of school programming at Winterthur, additional support for school scholarship funding was given in 2010 by the Carol Ammon Foundation.
