DescriptionLocated in the Delaware Public Archives building adjacent to Legislative Hall, the First State Heritage Park Welcome Center & Galleries serves as an entrance portal to Delaware's state capital and the historic city of Dover. The center is ideally situated for auto-borne visitation with easy highway access and plentiful parking. Visitor services include tours of the center's exhibits, and extensive information on local and statewide attractions, events, and activities.

The First State Heritage Park at Dover is Delaware's first urban "park without boundaries" linking historic and cultural sites in the city that has been the seat of state government since 1777. It is a partnership of Delaware's Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs with other state and city agencies under the leadership of Delaware State Parks.

The First State Heritage Park Welcome Center & Galleries serves as the Welcome Center in Delaware's state capital, a hub for the First State Heritage Park, and host for exhibitions developed by Delaware's Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs.
