The Biggs Museum is one of the best regional museums I've experienced (regional meaning that it's permanent collections focus on objects made in or owned by people of the Mid-Atlantic region). The Delaware Silver study area is great - you can view more substantial hollowware pieces in display cases and pull out the drawers below to look at a huge array of flatware including some really unusual pieces like hair combs. The core of the museum's collection is comprised of period furniture and decorative arts, paintings, folk art, silver, etc.
Ryan Grover, the curator, does a great job of bringing interesting and exciting temporary exhibits that make the museum worth visiting regularly. He also puts on a LOT of programs for kids and families. The museum is definitely one of the best I've seen for involving children and having enough interactive facets for them to explore (see comments about the Delaware Silver area in previous paragraph). The museum is free to the public, another major plus.
