    Guests will tour the Eleutherian Mills, the first du Pont family home built in America. It reveals the stories of five generations of the du Pont family members. Tours of the residence are guided and run every half hour from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. They will also walk through remains of the original DuPont gunpowder mills on a self-guided tour, or stop to watch demonstrations on 19th century equipment.
    Children and their parents will have the chance to tour the exhibit "DuPont Science and Discovery." Guests can gaze at polymers under a microscope, peer through a space suit, or pose for a picture in Jeff Gordon's 24 DuPont NASCAR. Belin House Organic Cafe' will also feature $1 hot dogs and blueberry lemonade.
