Located in a 19th century grist mill, the Museum highlights the work of American artists with a special emphasis on the art of the Brandywine region & the Wyeth family. When you go, pick up a museum discovery game sheet. Kids’ audio tours also available. The Museum also maintains the house & studio of artist W.C. Wyeth and Kuerner Farm, a site that inspired many of Andrew Wyeth’s works. These buildings are open for public tours, but children younger than age 6 are not permitted on those tours.
KIDBIT: On the ground flood, the artwork of local school children is on display.
FAMILY MUST-SEES: Right at the museum’s entrance, kids meet their likeness in the 10-foot-tall Boy with Hawk bronze sculpture that greets them. Search the grounds for more bronze sculptures (keep an eye open — and the camera ready! — for a cow, pig and rabbit); meet Den-Den, the subject of the full-sized, lifelike Portrait of a Pig; and rendezvous with pirates and other classic kid-lit characters in illustrations of Treasure Island, Kidnapped and Robin Hood.
