Reviewed 15 April 2014

.. you certainly will enjoy visiting this museum. Not only will you see works of N. C., Andrew and Jamie, you will see works of their piers and devotees of American Realism. Additionally, the museum offers many other collections and exhibits.

“WONDERFUL WYETH MUSEUM ON BEAUTIFUL GROUNDS”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Even the lunch was good, in fact very good, the museum has many places to sit and review the entire collection so museum fatigue is never an issue. Stroll along the banks of the quiet river and explore the outdoor sculpture before getting back on the road. The collection seems much larger than it did years ago.

“Perfect museum”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Lots of Wyeths, relatively small in size so it is not overwhelming, great gift shop. The building itself is very interesting.

“Art from America's Painter”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I really love this museum, featuring 3 generations of Wyeth art (with extra attention to Andrew's) in a beautiful setting beside the scenic Brandywine River. I've been coming here for 19 years and so enjoy the fixed and changing exhibits. Note: Not ideal for children as they are likely to bore quickly.
