Exhibiting American art in a 19th-century gristmill, the Brandywine River Museum is internationally known for its unparalleled collection of works by three generations of Wyeths--N.C., Andrew, and Jamie--and a fine collection of American illustration, still life, and landscape painting. The museum combines the elegance of art with the grandeur of nature with glass-walled lobbies providing expansive views of the river.
The museum features special exhibitions throughout the year, including "A Brandywine Christmas," with an extensive O-gauge model railroad, and famous "critter" ornaments.
From mid-April to November, the Brandywine River Museum offers tours of the nearby house and studio where NC. Wyeth created most of his famous works of art, as well as the Kuerner Farm, which has inspired nearly 1,000 works of art by Andrew Wyeth.
