My wife heard on the PBS News Hour about an exhibit of the works of N.C. Wyeth at the Brandywine River Museum in Chadd's Ford PA. We booked a room and headed down from Upstate NY. We were not disappointed-the Gallery which is modern in...More

Not to be missed by anyone in the area. Here for the N.C. Wyeth exhibit. Was very enlightening. He did a lot more than illustrations. Examples of his impressionistic work from the teens and 20s. It is interesting to trace the family lineage in their...More

A great museum to get a better understanding of the Wyeth family and the several generations of artists. You will not be disappointed with the collection of works mostly by Nc and his son Andrew. There are separate excursions to the studios, but be aware...More

Fun Museum situated in a very natural setting along the creek and in a repurposed grist mill. The collection primarily features works by the N.C. Wyeth family and also other area artists. Having been a long time admirer of N.C. and Andrew's works, this Museum...More

You won’t want to miss this gem. The Wyeth family of painters have made a contribution to American art that goes well beyond this small beautifully located museum. Starting with N.C.’s illustrations - I remembered “Old Pew” from my Treasure Island book back in the...More

This museum is a must see if you are an art lover who is in the Greater Philadelphia area for any length of time. While it has perhaps the most extensive collection of Wyeths in the country, and Andrew’s work studio, it’s more than that,...More

Lovely, accessible museum with wonderful Wyeth paintings and lots of glass windows overlooking stream and trees. Perfect size, as the teens can see some great art by 3 generations of Wyeths, and yet the whole museum is three small floors.

We had a idyllic summer afternoon at the museum. We thoroughly enjoyed the art and museum. I would definitely go back! We also strolled along the River.

Since the museum is in a remote bucolic location, the best bet is a taxi or Uber from the Wilmington station, which is about ten miles away.

Have not been to Barnes museum in Philadelphia, but Wyeth works are likely different except maybe when Brandywine museum loans out works from its permanent collection.
