The Zwaanendael is almost your typical local history museum. Almost.
Like most other local history museums, there are artifacts, clothes, etc. from the time period they’re focusing on. You can also see the door of the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse, which toppled over in 1926.
But I didn’t come to see that.
I went to the Zwaanendael Museum to see just one thing: the merman.
It’s not really a merman (derrr), but rather half fish and half monkey. It’s not very big…a bit over a foot long.
There is no admission charge to visit this museum.
