We went to this museum because the ratings seemed pretty good. After listening to a way too long introduction by the curator, we ventured around. Talk about a bunch of junk! A match stick that lit a birthday candle.... a lock of hair. I guess...More

Took the kids today for Summer Stories and was reminded of how much I love this place! A must see for anyone who is interested in Chester County history in general and the Wyeths specifically. Many original Wyeths and amazing artifacts.

This museum was a find. It has a very varied and interesting collection of artifacts. It is in a house with 8 rooms each with artifacts dealing with a common theme. There is even some Wyeth family art. I would highly recommend this museum to...More

I have traveled around the world and seen many museums - but nothing has ever moved me like the Christian Sanderson Museum. It is the extraordinary intimacy of the collection - from a scrap of cloth off Lincoln's casket to the Valentines Christian received as...More
