$100K campaign to help a Pocomoke City museum

POCOMOKE CITY, Md. – The Delmarva Discovery Museum is asking the public to help them keep their doors open.

Campaign organizers say the museum has been a unique historical and environmental landmark here on the eastern shore. With their historical information and animal environments, they say they enjoy being able to give kids and adults educational lessons and provide interactions with their star attractions, the otters.

However, the pandemic hit them hard and they say between lack of staffing, facility upgrades and expansion, with business picking back up they need to raise money to stay open.

“We see us turning the corner and making some changes in the operation and increasing our exhibits for the public to see,” says Bill Ferguson, Board Treasurer of Delmarva Discovery Museum. “I think people will come in and look at the history of what we’ve done here in Pocomoke and in our area, I think that’s very important for us to maintain as we move forward.”
