The Delmarva Discovery Center on the Pocomoke River serves as a source of learning and discovery for the public through the preservation and interpretation of its cultural and natural heritage.
 
Located on the Pocomoke River in downtown Pocomoke City, the Delmarva Discovery Center (DDC) is a living museum, a place for learning and discovery for visitors of all ages. The immersive and engaging exhibits take visitors on a timeless journey through Delmarva and through the Cypress Swamp. The exhibits focus on the river ecology and the human history of the Pocomoke River and Delmarva. The DDC continues to add to its unique collection, offering return visitors something new to discover each time they visit. The DDC offers a regular schedule of programs, tours, and presentations to families, school classes, youth groups, and other visitors.
 
The DDC 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.

Delmarva Discovery Museum was fun! I especially like the animals that they have in the mueseum ( especially the otters). I’ve learned so much about what’s happening while I’m reading the history of Delmarva.

Nice little museum explaining the wildlife and history of the DelMarVa. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice gift shop! Worth the drive if you're staying in OCMD.

We love this place! Especially my 3 and 10 year olds. The otters are our favorite. But the giant inside boat is a close second. The touch tank had a few surprises for us, the flounder is a very good hider! Loved the giftshop. And the employees are so sweet! We did the scavenger hunt cards and it made our kids actually READ the exhibits instead of just passing by.
