Brandywine River Museum of Art
Discover an outstanding collection of American art housed in a nineteenth-century mill with a dramatic steel and glass addition overlooking the banks of the Brandywine River. Renowned for its holdings of the Wyeth family of artists, the museum features galleries dedicated to the work of N.C., Andrew and Jamie Wyeth.

     Due to the forecast of heavy snow, the sold-out evening event for Thursday, March 5 has been rescheduled to Saturday, March 7. The museum will open at 5:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 6 p.m. in the museum’s lecture room. Following the program, there will be a reception and the galleries will remain open until 8:30 p.m. Ticket holders who are unable to attend on the new date may contact the museum shop at 610.388.8326 for a refund.
