The Laurel Heritage Museum is located in the old Laurel Train Station. This building was the location that welcomed travelers to Laurel as they arrived by train and saw members of the community leave to serve during World War II. The building, following extensive restoration by the Town of Laurel, as well as other local and state agencies, now houses the Laurel Chamber of Commerce and the Laurel Heritage Museum. The museum is a collaborative effort between the Laurel Historical Society and the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs.
The Laurel Heritage Museum features an extensive collection of historical documents and objects from the collections of the Society and the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs. The key element of the museum is the one-of-a-kind Waller Photographic Collection, which has been recognized as a premier historical collection by the Delaware Public Archives and the University of Delaware.
Effective March 2018, the museum is will be open from 10am to 2pm on Thursdays and Friday of each week. For your convenience, it can be opened by appointment. Both museums will continue to be open on the first Sunday of the month from 1:00 - 4:00 PM.
