  • This is a rather small art museum featuring many of the works from the Wyeth artists; N. C., Andrew, and Jaime. It is beautifully set up, it isn't so large as to overwhelm visitors and there are tours...  more »

  • The Brandywine River Museum is a nice place to relax. The art work is nice to look at. There is a creek outside that is good for enjoying the quiet.

  • Wonderful museum in Chadds Ford, PA. They have a newly retooled museum cafe with fascinating lunch options (I had a skate sandwich, for example) and a beautiful view of the Brandywine. The museum features works by N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth, and others in the Wyeth family. We went on a tour of N.C. Wyeth's home and studio, which was a short bus ride away and led by a knowledgeable and helpful guide. The special exhibition on the top floor features children's book illustrators. Could easily spend more time at this small but beautiful museum.
  • If you like Andrew Wyeth and the Brandywine River School, this is the place for you! The building is a renovated structure that keeps a rustic contemporary attitude throughout and the views of the Brandywine River are lovely. Another unique feature of the museum is its native plant gardens which are amazing any time of year. Lunch can be bought on the first floor in a cafe behind the shop.
  • Awesome museum. Make sure you go on the house and studio tour. They bus you down the street for this tour. The museum and grounds is an amazing place. Excellent, fresh food in the cafe with great view of brandywine waterway. Must visit !!
  • Nestling beside the Brandywine River, this museum is focused on the American visual artists of the Northeast and particularly the surrounding Brandywine Valley, where three generations of Wyeths (N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth and Jamie Wyeth) and their artistic circle lived and worked. The museum has rotating exhibitions, but the permanent collection of Wyeth paintings and drawings are a 'must see'. The museum also features docent escorted tours of the Wyeth family home and studio and the nearby Kuerner Farm. Allow a half to full day to see it all....it's really something special.
  • A beautiful jewel box of a museum just outside Philadelphia with collection of Wyeth family paintings and others. The N. C. Wyeth "Treasure Island" illustrations alone are worth the admission. If the weather is nice be sure to walk along the river outside the main building.
