We are frequent visitors to Longwood Gardens, and so decided to go down the road 7 miles to Chadd's Ford and see what's what. This museum is a must. A collection of the Wyeth Family artists, and also many other notable and wonderful American artists, you are simply blown away by one masterpiece after another. The building itself is extremely...

This is a great spot to take out of town guests. The works of local artist, Andrew Wyeth, are worth sharing. The building is beautiful and so is the setting. I recommend the trail walk to the Chadd House which is also a nice feature.

I visited this temporary exhibit yesterday with my spouse. On one hand, I was disappointed that it contained only a few paintings by Edward Hopper. On the other hand, there were plenty more paintings by various artists to take in. My personal favorites were the cityscapes from the early 20th century. Some of them truly captured a feeling of how... More

My husband had business in the Chadds Ford area, and asked if I wanted to come along and visit the Brandywine River Museum while he worked. I gladly jumped at the chance having visited here many times over the years. It's a lovely museum for fans of the Wyeth family of artists. But the special exhibition From Homer to Hopper,... More

Lovely setting along the Brandywine. I am not a big Wyeth fan but I do enjoy good art and they have good art. I took a side tour to N C Wyeth's home and studio nearby. That was well worth the time. I have a new appreciation of all of the Wyeths.

Went this past Sunday with my wife for her birthday. We have been going here for years and always look forward to our visits. Wyeth is always great no matter where and there is always plenty to see.

I had the pleasure of having a private tour of the Brandywine Art Museum. Our doesn't, a retired volunteer, was knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful overview of the museum's collections. There were several galleries devoted to the works of the Wyeth family-N.C., Andrew, Jaime, and Carolyn. Works by other artists were interspersed among throughout the three floors-included were paintings... More
