Enjoy looking at Wyeth's work. The kids had the best time walking the trails by the river.

tina schmutz

Had a great experience and the staff are super friendly and helpful :) plan on coming back in the fall to look out at the river and walk the trail along the side

Mark Dunham

If you love Wyeths this is the place to go. Plus an expansive building overhanging the river. Antidote to all the hunt and DuPont country hoopla.


There are almost N.C Wyeth's Pictures in the museum. Really good pictures and place.

Serge L Chauvin

Outside France I love this museum best. The site is a beautiful setting to breathe in nature. Though I can no longer kayak I loved seeing kayakers and rafters enjoying the clear waters. The art of NC Wyeth was displayed with captivating commentary about his literary and commercial illustrations and the paintings executed during his later years. It's a must see.

Ryan Crammer

Beautiful location and a wonderful contributor to Chester County culture.

James Moyer

The handmade natural ornaments are truly unique and worth a trip to see!

Kevin Traylor

Amazing NC Wyeth collection!

vince piesetzkie

Can't wait to float by with a group!

Bill Cummins

Bought family passes and had the day of my life here. I took the N C Wyeth home and studio tour. There is something about being in the studio where so many iconic works of art that fired the imaginations of so many people were created. This museum has to be on your bucket list.

M Coe

Exceptional architecture, well presented comprehensive collection of N.C. Wyeth's work, and thoughtful overview of American illustration.

Bev Miller

Love this place and their exhibits.

Frank Fusco

Nice little Americana museum. N.C. Wyeth exhibition outstanding!

One of the best collections of American illustration anywhere! A beautiful museum in which you can spend a few hours or an entire day. The gardens and sculptures outside are great for visiting in warm weather. Check out the cafe for a tasty lunch!

Sheldon Switzer

Excellent museum and grounds.

Bolling Willse

Every year, we make our pilgrimage to the "Wyeth" museum... to see the handmade ornaments. Everyone should visit N. C. Wyeth, at least annually!

K Hill

Wonderfully curated art museum with American artists. The NC house and studio tour is well worth it. We really enjoyed our time in this beautiful gallery.

Rebecca DiBartolomeo

Had a great lunch and even though it was rainy the museum and property were beautiful.

Frederick Teitelbaum

Reasonable price for the content. I enjoyed it. Parking, excellent, lite food available in a nice surrounding.

Valerie Briglia

This museum. It's such a gem in the community. The art alone is worth a night out, but add in the beautiful surroundings, the children's programs, the festivals and events and you can make this place part of your seasonal traditions. Get there!

Fury Nick

Did I enjoy it um yes, was the building lovely very much so. It has an excellent view of the Brandywine river. How's the art, good some would say very others less so. For me I went there since it was free for me to do so. Might I go again possibly in 10 to 15 yrs.

Joseph C Deiter

Love the train display at Christmas time. A must see for young children.

Loved an afternoon at Brandywine River Museum . N C Wyeth collection currently on display at the museum was outstanding ! Walked outside for awhile watching people / families tuning down the Brandywine !

Marsha Crum

The new NCWyeth exhibit is fabulous

PJ Sigg

Beautiful location, large collection of Wyeth family art, and some free family friendly monthly events.

David Kyle

One of my favorite places on the earth. If you are a fan of Andrew Wyeth and his family of artists, this is a must for you to visit. They have a wonderful collection of work from 3 generations of Wyeth's as well a terrific rotation of exhibitions throughout the year. I've been visiting this Museum for almost 40 years and it never ceased to amaze me.

Elizabeth Harned

Unique displays. Local artists featured

jeff johns

Beautiful museum with a great outdoor river trail

karen giffing

A wonderful day soaking in local history and a fun train set up! So much to see.

Todd Holtsberry

Best collection of Wyeth's around!

Patrick Durek

The Wyatt exhibits (three generations) are marvelous. There are quite a few paintings to peruse--and each of the Wyatts has a unique style--so give yourself a couple hours. There are even tours of the Wyatt studios (for an extra fee).

rebecca o'brien

Holiday train experience is one of the highlights of the season for our family. Fun for the whole family!

Andrew Rossi

Great place!

Ken McIntosh

I've been here several times and have enjoyed each and every visit. After Thanksgiving they have the model trains running, and one stretches from wall to wall. Also, Veterans, don't forget to ask for the Veterans get in for free.

Julia Nichols

Such a nice place, love NC Wyeth and his family. Reminds me of the time I spent in Wilmington Library with his paintings looking down on me.

Melissa Karlson

Amazing place! Beautiful museum with friendly staff. Designed in a way that is easy to explore. Classy and peaceful. A wonderful way to spend time feeling inspired and centered.

Angel Brown

Wonderful Parton Middle School art exhibit. Love this museum!

Vivacha F

Good tour guides.

kathleen magness

First Mondays free admission. Brandywine school art and more. Airy and peaceful. It's all Chester county cool

William Schwenk

Very informative exhibit of N.C. Wyeth's illustrations. Learned much about his life and how good his illustrations are. Tour of his studio and house is excellent and the docent was particularly knowledgeable. Highly recommended but exhibit ends Sept. 15.

Helen Huang

Nice museum with works from three generation of Wyeth

Jane Jing

Wonderful museum to visit! Along the brandywine creek, the museum beautifully situated. There are permanent collections from Andrew Wyeth and his family members. There are also two exhibitions including Winslow Homer. Personally I really really like the portrait of Betsy James Wyeth who is Andrew Wyeth’s wife. I love the composition, the color, the facial expression of painting. Also the Andy Warhol portrait is very interesting too. I also like some the landscapes paintings by William T. Richards.

Vincent Rocca

Excellent American Art Museum in bucolic country setting. Highly recommended.

Amanda Lott, REALTOR

Definitely make time or return to do the house and studio tours. And if you’re in the mood for a new book, the gift shop is a good place to start.

Tobias Haller

Spectacular collection of Wyeth family work, in the place much of it was made.

Rick Warner

Highly recommended. Great exhibits. Can't wait to see the upcoming NC Wyeth show

Joe Marinelli

We're going back again!

adam cohen

Great Wyeth collection

Credible Critic

A small museum featuring the works of three generations of the Wyeth family. The collection is very extensive, showcasing the illustration style of art that the Wyeths are known for. Beautiful layout, one can go through the permanent exhibit in three floors with ease. Special exhibit in the same style is quite good and well presented. The museum is situated along the bank of the Brandywine river, gives it an airy feel. A family can spend a few hours here very easily. Children can burn off their energy by running around on its ground. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive. A must see in the area.

Brittany Almeta Calhoun

Great place to visit if you are a real American art/ Wyeth family fan! The grounds are scerine with the most beautiful butterflies, bees, and plants surrounding the gardens and rive trails. I also admire their Horrace Pippin collection! Amazingly unique gift shope with featuring PA artisans. This museum now closes at 4:30PM.


Lovely museum with some great American artists’ works (Wyeth family & special Homer exhibit when I came). I spent about 3 hours. The audio guide, while clunky and buggy (it kept restarting and losing my place in the audio), was really informative and enjoyable to listen to. I was there today on Black Friday and it wsd crowded with visitors (including families with small children for the train exhibit). I admit this was really annoying as many were talking very loudly and not paying attention to the art (is there not a better place to chat about politics???). The headphones on the audio guide stink but I was able to use my earbuds which helped with the ambient “noise”.

Penny Anderson

Wonderful collection of Wyeth paintings and in a lovely setting

John E

Lovely little museaum. Christmas train display is great for kids but the only thing for kids. Nice little cafe.

Jamie Grace-Duff

Lovely scenic location for a museum. Collection is small but packed full of wonderful pieces. Access to historic Wyeth family studios, homes, with tours and classes available. Or, just wander the river path nearby and enjoy some quiet under the trees.

Frank DeAngelis

Beautiful facility in a gorgeous setting. Very modern building with lots of great art from the region. The place was almost empty on this Saturday morning and we had a guide all to ourselves. Just like a private tour.

Darre Martin

Beautiful place to visit.

Eileen M.

My father who was a fan of Andrew Wyeth passed away just over a year ago. Visiting the museum brought back nice memories of art discussions with him. Although I wish he was with me, he was there in spirit.

Barry Levine

Wonderful museum highlighting the works of the Wyeth family and Howard Pyle. Beautiful location on the Brandywine Creek. About two hours to view the galleries and another hour for the studio tours. There is a cafe and gift shop.

Tova Horenstein

Beautiful setting. A real treasure of American Art.

Roger Evans

Spend time by the stream , outstanding art display and tour

Wesley McCormick

Museums ok but the river is 10 star go on a float or schedule one with me and my crew . You'll have the time of your life .

Robert Lentz

Excellent and enjoyable!

Lenora Schroeder

Love the train and Christmas displays.

Ann kroh-hughes

Beautiful museum located along the bucolic Brandywine River. Paintings were displayed well with great lighting. A must-see for art lovers and novice artists as well.

john parker

Creek was great 20 bucks a car a little pricey

Linda Vought

What a beautiful museum in a lovely setting. I was so glad that I discovered this wonderful museum. Exhibits were well presented and very interesting. Go!

Chip Slanina

It's not Christmas until you see the model trains and decorated trees at the Brandywine River Museum. We go every year. BONUS - the cafe is excellent too.

Timothy Brockington

Allow yourself a couple of hours to enjoy the artwork then another couple of hours for enjoying the scenery

Bob Wisniewski

Serene, lovely setting, wonderful Wyeth family art reminds me of books and stories from my youth.

Marlin Sheesley

Have loved the Brandywine Museum since my first visit back in the 80’s. Been there many times, but my visit in Dec. this year was spectacular. The Christmas train setup on the second level was fantastic. The Wyeth family paintings on display were great too. Spent a very special afternoon their on the Brandywine on a quiet winter afternoon.

Jock McClees

Pretty art museum with a focus on the artists of the Brandywine Valley. The Wyeths and Howard Pyle are the best known. You can also tour NC and Andrew Wyeth's home and art studios nearby.

JK Mickshaw

Super museum. Beautiful grounds. I really enjoyed learning about the Wyeth family and viewing their works. I appreciated that the museum wasn't crowded and the atmosphere was peaceful and quiet.

Blake LastName

Very beautiful building. This place is full of amazing art and has a great view of the river just outside. A great place to visit if you are looking to enjoy some fine art.

Charles W.

Haven't been here for decades. In fact, probably over 40 years. I realize now that I must have originally come to the Brandywine River Museum shortly after it opened in 1971, when I was in elementary school. We brought my son here as part of the Boy Scout Art merit badge. It was great. So many spectacular paintings from the Wyeth family, and others. I'd highly recommend it as a great place to bring the family. They also have a nice gift shop and our son got a small print of one of the paintings we really liked. They also give AAA discounts. Great job, Brandywine River Museum!

Mary D

This art gallery is exceptional featuring the art of Andrew Wyeth and his talented family. If you are in the Philadelphia area, don't miss it.

Jared Layser

I come here every time I visit home, a beautiful building and an unbelievable collection of art. Go for the N.C. Wyeth studio tour! It is offsite, they take you there with a shuttle bus. The studio is preserved in the same condition as he left it, with several large pieces and one that he was still completing when he passed away. It was breathtaking.

Ruthie Kranz-Carl

The special display of Jamie's paintings of Phyllis was well done. Poignant.

Veronica Bartley

More than a collection of art, you can visit either NC Wyeth or Andrew Wyeth's house and studio. Some really avant garde items on display. Lovely gift shop. Tours are additional $$$.

Scott Weber

Great place to enjoy the work of local N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth and Jamie Wyeth. They often have great traveling exhibits are often very good. enjoyed food in the cafe as well. great location overlooking Brandywine river.

Jennifer Maguire

I love this museum. It's in a beautiful setting, and their exhibitions are always thoughtfully and expertly done. Very accessible and friendly for children--don't forget to check out the outdoor spaces, as well. The Brandywine River is the amazing, beautiful-in-every-season, backdrop to this collection of works by the Wyeth family and more.

Mark Schofield

First class museum lots to discover must see


A beautiful museum in a scenic location. Definitely worth visiting, if you're in the area. Got in for very cheap with my student ID. Lots of great pieces on display, however, two of the three floors seem dedicated to the works of the Wyeth Family, so don't expect a ton of diversity.

Amy Funk

Very interesting exhibit on Homer's art and photography. Too wet and rainy for us to enjoy the river trail. Lots of Wyeth art. The Wyeth studios were closed for the winter so we will have to come back to have a total experience.

C Jacobs

Excellent small museum!

John H

This Art Museum is mostly about the art by Andrew Wyeth, his dad, N C Wyeth, son jaime, and other family members. Some really great works by Howard Pyle. I've always liked Andrew's work but I think I like his dad's and son's work even more. They are much more colorful, with much more colorful subjects too. CHECK OUT THE CURRENT EXHIBIT ON JAIME'S PAINTINGS OF HIS WIFE PHYLLIS WHO RECENTLY PASSED AWAY. THEY'RE JUST FULL OF A WIDE RANGE OF RICH EMOTIONS.

Jackie Colestock

We had a wonderful and Veri informative visit.

stephen smith

Nice museum, the artwork rarely changes if ever. If you are into the wyeths, it's the place to go.

Sub Spaceman

Everything Wyeth. Cozy and well curated.

joe Hare

Magnificent display of Wyeth illustrations and paintings.

Harvey Mains

Fantastic display of the Wyeth family art. Impressive collection of Andrew and N. C. Wyeth art with a smattering of artworks by other family members. Also hidden away, you will find works by Weymouth and his contemporaries. Plan to spend several hours. There are seating areas for contemplation and great views of the Brandywine Creek.

Cathy Hatrock

Wow, the artwork, the setting, the staff! Great place to visit, includes nice setee groupings when you need a break.

Jim Sears

Excellent collection of Wyeth family art. Beautiful setting in Brandywine country.

Robert Fried

Very interesting Britsh pub like restaurant. The food is well prepared, tastes great. A nice selection of beers to suit all tastes. I will go again.

Doris Carter

Beautiful place for art lovers and place for Meditation . Hicking trail looked interesting but was not able to do.

Ebuka Umunna

Lovely museum in a picturesque setting

Michael Palan

They’ve got the Wyeth stuff - and much more! A place of serine beauty both inside, on the walls, and outside!

Gail Mroz

Rich Cower

Beautiful setting, very nice art collection

William Feldman

Nice museum for 2 hours. Great grounds for a picnic


Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great place to spend a few hours

Chris Waldeck

Excellent collection of early American illustration, especially local artists. The food options and shop seem slipshod by comparison.

Karen Parkinson

Excellent way to learn about the Wyeth family and their artwork!

Chad Barger

Gorgeous museum right on the Brandywine River with an amazing Wyeth family collection.

Brad DeSandro

Beautiful views inside and out. Spellbinding paintings. Knowledgeable tour guide.

Gaeli Keffer-Scharpf

It was really fun to see the Halloween and Cinderella art pieces. The lunch was okay, wish they served breakfast. It is FREE the first Sunday of every month, so there were ALOT of people there. There was something going on so all the kids were dressed up as pirates. overall pretty fun.

Jared Wilson

To be honest with you, I stopped there while I was driving by on my motorcycle. I needed a little time to stretch my legs, so what I did was hike the trail that goes along the Brandywine River behind and north of the Brandywine River Museum. The museum itself does look very nice on the outside. I did not go inside so I can't comment on anything about the interior. The hike along the path along the Brandywine River was a very nice, relaxing hike. There were lots of people out there that day, and everyone seemed to be having great time. Some people were recreating on the water, others were hiking the path, and some were just out there to picnic, cook food on the grill, and listen to music. It's a nice place to check out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Mary Jenkins

Beautiful setting and interesting paintings with great labels.

betty ford

I had never been to your beautiful area. The museum was laid out so well. The views were wonderful. I .just compliment the curator for articulating the meanings and methods.

Jane Maloney

Lovely museum, featuring The Wyeths, overlooking Brandywine Creek.

Sheila Mugabi

Wonderful exhibit right now! I believe it ends 9/15. Great setting by the Brandywine River. We r so fortunate to have a museum like this so close.

Lisa B.

A gem for Wyeth fans! Lighting was perfect; Open modern design. Plenty of seating, a cafe and professional, friendly staff. Three floors (not overwhelming or disappointing). Tucked back in the woods by a river so peaceful as well.

patty hedges

Beautiful setting to enjoy the works of a favorite artist

david wambold

Train display was neat in that it had local businesses and a search and find for the kids, but a much smaller display than other places we've been. They also had a smaller art display then they've had in the past. This will not be entertaining for most children.

Lynn Leonard

Must see. Wonderful part of all the Brandywine Valley has to offer .

Patrick Lavin

Always love going there over Christmas. The soloist was excellent !!

Marcus Van Gorden

Nice museum, set in a beautiful location! Photography and even sketching is allowed and your ticket is good for two days! Three generations of the Wyeth families art as well as many other artists. If the weather is nice take a chance to walk some of the trails along the Brandywine river. Beautiful setting for the museum. The gift shop sells prints of the art as actually affordable prices, as well as a wide variety of books.

Carl Closs

Andrew Wyeth's art museum is worth a visit any time of the year.

Jane Harkin

Beautiful art works in a lovely setting.

Carla Katz

This museum is beautiful as it's a converted grist mill with a panoramic view overlooking the Brandywine River and hosts the Wyeth collections. Start with a guided tour and enjoy the cafe and gift shop. What a wonderful way to spend your day! I discovered it one sunny day and became a member before my departure.

June Davis

Lovely setting for Wyeth collections. Informative guides.

Jean Toman

Great holiday visit. As usual, trains lots of fun! And great critters this year, too.

Laura Era

Love this museum tucked back in the woods and by a stream. So restful and peaceful not to mention the wonderful exhibit of Andrew Wyeth. We spent the better part of a day there and will go back again

Jack Luke

Great destination. GO !

Mike Nicholas

Great little art museum. Really knowledgeable staff

Bill Forand

Always a wonderful time to visit this museum, one of the most beautiful museums ever, itself a work of art! Special Winslow Homer exhibit an added bonus!!

Jerod Mason

Amazing art facility with a wonderful view of the river.

Judy Carter

Fabulous for Wyeth fans. Tours to the studio and farm were so informative! The guides were knowledgeable and truly enhanced the experience. Don't miss it.

Odamis Fernandez-Sheinbaum

This was my first time visiting here. The pieces are mostly American Post Modern by the Wyeth and McCoy family. Children will enjoy the model trains and doll house. Current winter exhibit includes Christmas Trees decorated with creatures created by volunteers using materials found in nature. The grounds next to the Brandywine River offer a great walk along a trail the follows the river.

Larry Williams

If you like Wythe, you will love this museum of the whole family and some others. Also, the setting is gorgeous.

Nonso Umunna

Great museum with N. C Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Carolyn Wyeth etc works. You can also get tours of the Wyeths studio and places that inspired some of their art works. It's also located in the scenic and beautiful Brandywine area and close to the river. Lovely museum. Highly recommended.

mike mertle

Always a great place to visit.

Nancy Graybeal

I love how Museum explains the Artists' relationship to the local area.


Home of the Wyeth family - great art!

Sharon Esterly

Best Christmas display of trains and Christmas trees full of "Critters." The art exhibits draw and inspire people from all over the world. River Walk is great all year. Museum shop continues to offer unique gifts, and member events entertain and educate all ages. Lucky to have this special museum in Chester County!

Geena Teodecki

Beautiful museum and gorgeous grounds but not very kid friendly.

Robert Sulentic

If like Wyeth's art, you will like this place.

Marcia Meikrantz

The Brandywine River Museum is always a wonderful, relaxing experience for me, and I always enjoy their special exhibits. The past three years have been a great way to become familiarized with all three generations of Wyeth painters. This museum has nice amenities, is limited in scope, and does an excellent job of displaying the works (frame choices, narratives, groupings).

Stolgrove Gredenko

An amazing part of history, no regrets in making this visit only wish I had done it sooner. Masterful works of art that play an important role in American Contemporary Art and show the teacher of the famous Norman Rockwell, after this exhibit I feel more closely connected to this great county.

Jeffrey Miller

I've been coming to the Brandywine River Museum since I was a kid and just brought my own kid to it. Great assortment of work by local artists and jaw dropping model train display that any kid (or adult) will be blown away by. The gift shop is quite fun, too.

Jim Nicholas

Very accessable museum. Attractive wooded surrounding.

Sharon Pflug

Amazing work by the entire Wyeth family on view. Beautiful grounds to walk near the river.

Sonya LaRae

Such a wonderful experience, if you haven't been to the Museum you must attend.

sonya unger

This is my second visit and it was so much better than the first time 5 years ago. This was all due to the fact that I became addicted to art 5 years ago. Greater appreciation for the arts now. The Wyeth's are an amazing family of painters! Check it out!

Bob Hartman

They be now have a tour of the Andrew Wyeth studio. If you are a fan of his work, you will especially enjoy a visit here. The museum itself is a favorite of ours.
