Excellent museum holding many memories for me of visits with my late father, a Philadelphia College of Art trained illustrator and watercolor artist, who introduced me to the wonders of great illustration. Equally important to me were the many visits here with my late husband, and our girls, to view the collections, meet wonderful artists like children’s book illustrator Jerry Pickney, and enjoy the marvelous Christmas train exhibit the museum shows each year. Highly recommend!!

I come here every time I visit home, a beautiful building and an unbelievable collection of art. Go for the N.C. Wyeth studio tour! It is offsite, they take you there with a shuttle bus. The studio is preserved in the same condition as he left it, with several large pieces and one that he was still completing when he passed away. It was breathtaking.

Gorgeous venue. First time I've been back in over a decade and was so happy to see how well maintained the grounds and building were. Can't wait to get married here this Fall!! This museum hold a very special place in my family's heart.

One of the best collections of American illustration anywhere! A beautiful museum in which you can spend a few hours or an entire day. The gardens and sculptures outside are great for visiting in warm weather. Check out the cafe for a tasty lunch!

This museum is beautiful as it's a converted grist mill with a panoramic view overlooking the Brandywine River and hosts the Wyeth collections. Start with a guided tour and enjoy the cafe and gift shop. What a wonderful way to spend your day! I discovered it one sunny day and became a member before my departure.
