Statement of Purpose:

To collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret significant artistic and historic objects of American art for public benefit and to provide facilities for this purpose.

Highlights & Collections:

The Brandywine River Museum is a unique showcase of American art.

This civil-war era grist mill converted into a modern museum is famous for its unparalleled collection of Wyeth family art and for its collections of American landscape and still life painting and illustration.

Galleries boast original beams and wide board floors, while lobbies with walls of glass provide expansive views of the river and surrounding meadows.

Outside, wlid flower gardens featuring plants native to the Brandywine Valley encircle the museum.

The museum hosts a shop renowned for its books on American art and Brandywine Valley artists, as well as fine art reproductions and other gifts.

The museum's restaurant-cafe overlooks the meandering Brandywine River. At a separate site, but accesible by shuttle from the museum, the studio owned and used by N.C. Wyeth is fully restored and is open for guided tours on a seasonal basis.
