Meeting Facilities

Less than five minutes from the center of Hockessin, we offer visitors a chance to climb into a historic automobile and experience traveling like you might in the early 1900s. The museum features the world’s largest operating collection of Stanley steam cars, a 1916 electric car, and two 1930s Packards, in addition to the Auburn Valley Railroad with its 1/8th-size coal-fired steam trains that circle the property and give passengers rides. The museum is open mid-March through December by appointment for private groups and educational programs, and for events such as the popular Easter Egg Hunt, Steamin' Days where visitors enjoy rides in historic automobiles and on the Auburn Valley Railroad, the annual Auburn Heights Invitational Historic Auto Display, and their December Old-Fashioned Holiday program. See for dates and details. Mansion Tours begin on the front porch at 1 or 3 pm; a Museum Tour is offered at 2:00 pm. Tour tickets are $8/adult or $4/child (12 and under) for the Mansion or $8/person for the Museum — or tour both for the discounted price of $14/adult or $11/child (a savings of $2 per person).
