The Rehoboth Beach Museum exhibit, "Angry Waters" opens May 27 2017. The exhibit chronicles the impact of storms on the beach area, telling the story of famous shipwrecks, and demonstrating how the community responded with lighthouses, lifesaving stations, and rebuilding efforts.

The Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes is currently exhibiting "Rose Color to Gold to Glowing Red: Orville and Ethel Peets in Paris 1913-1914." The exhibit features 15 paintings - eight works by Orville Houghton Peets (1884-1968) and seven works by his wife Ethel Canby Peets (1877-1955). Also displayed are an assemblage of painting materials used by the noted Delaware artists including paint brushes and palettes. Ethel and Orville Peets are credited with bringing fresh, modern ideas to Delaware after their move to Herring Creek near Millsboro in the 1930s. They each influenced the local art-scene in a profound and lasting manner by creating art, teaching classes and holding art forums. Exhibit through December 2017.

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.
