I know this place is very small, but the history behind the battlefield is simply a must stop if you are in the area. Nice little gift shop and it is directly off US-1 so it is not hard to find..definitely make some time if...More

This small historic site may not be worth the stop if you're not really into history. It's an average park with not a whole not to offer. The tour, shop and museum are closed Monday and Tuesday, but the actual grounds are open (they may...More

It was a place where George Washington actually did sleep(although I suspect not too soundly!) It was interesting to hear about the battle, see a movie, tour a historic house, and see some artifacts. This is a great stop for history buffs.

Recently made a return visit to Brandywine Battlefield, previously visited 15 years ago. It has improved greatly. I can tell more attention is being paid to bring this famous location into better visitor destination. Better docents-much more qualified. They still regard Brandywine as a American...More
