Mission Statement

Vision: To be a place where innovation inspires and imaginations run wild.

Mission: At Hagley, we invite people of all ages to investigate and experience the unfolding history of American business, technology, and innovation, and its impact on the world, from our home at the historic DuPont powder yards on the banks of the Brandywine. 

Volunteer Purpose: Volunteers of all ages play an integral part in fulfilling the mission of Hagley. They provide support, expertise, time, experience, ideas, and energy enabling projects and tasks to be accomplished that would not be possible without the volunteers.  Volunteers work side-by-side with staff and learn from the collections, and the experiences they have with visitors at Hagley.
