We happened upon this museum on a rainy day and it was well worth the trip. A bit pricey when compared to Longwood Gardens which is comparable in price but well-maintained and had quite a selection of artwork from various artist.

The last time we visited there was a great installation exhibit that I could have watched for hours. The art was interesting and the setting was perfect for sitting and watching the river. Whimsical sculpture placed along the outdoor path.

Despite protests from the Peanut Gallerz, I detoured specifically to take my kids here enroute to upstate NY. It proved to be a great stop. The museum is small but very nicely done, and the paintings by NC Wyeth were interesting to the younger set-and...More

This museum primarily shows the work of artists in the Wyeth family and has a modern design with a beautiful view of the Brandywine River. Due to rain, we weren't able to take the tours of the studios and other buildings on the property. There...More
