“a museum of regional and American art”
Discover a distinguished collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art, housed in a renovated nineteenth-century mill with a dramatic steel and glass addition that overlooks the bucolic Brandywine River. The extraordinary site—the intersection of art and nature—emphasizes the Brandywine Conservancy’s commitment to the preservation of the natural, cultural and scenic resources of the region.
One of the best small museums I've been to. Three generations of Wyeth's plus many more artists. Beautiful setting and grounds too.
One of my favorite museums! The selection of artwork is impressive beyond measure and the property is breathtaking in and of itself. The surrounding area makes for a delightful little trip as well.
Free admission Sunday mornings. Delightful brunch locale overlooking the river or you can BYO picnic. Also good for a mom morning out. Kids 5 and under will enjoy running the grounds. Older kids will yawn at the artwork, a scavenger hunt might keep them more interested. Be patient with locating the museum. Hard to find.
A gem of museum for American painters. The focal point are NC Wyeth and his son Andrew Wyeth, but there are always many more artists on display. During Christmas the museum always has a wonderful holiday display.
