About the Brandywine River Museum of Art
Exhibiting American art in a 19th-century grist mill, the Brandywine River Museum of Art is internationally known for its unparalleled collection of works by three generations of Wyeths and its fine collection of American illustration, still life and landscape painting.

Andrew Wyeth Studio
Wyeth painted in the studio from 1940 until 2008. Thousands of works of art are associated with this studio, including those inspired by the farms and open space of the Brandywine Valley, and the Brandywine River that runs through Chadds Ford and the surrounding countryside. Given to the Brandywine Conservancy by the artist's wife, Betsy James Wyeth, the studio has undergone careful restoration to preserve its appearance when it was used by the late artist.

Visitors may also tour the N.C. Wyeth House and Studio and the Kuerner Farm. Tickets for each tour cost $8 per person (members, free) in addition to Museum admission. Special package tours of multiple properties are available.
