Discovering Delaware's Maritime Past Display at Zwaanendael Museum  explores the DeBraak, a shipwrecked 18th-century British warship including a photo of the hull recovery, reproductions of items aboard ship, and a model of the vessel.

A Seaborne Citizenry: The DeBraak and Its Atlantic World Exhibit at Zwaanendael Museum utilizes artifacts recovered from His Majesty's Sloop of War DeBraak, a British warship that sank off the Delaware coast on May 25, 1798 to tell the story of the vessel, its crew and the historical context within which it operated in the Atlantic World of the late 18th century.
