  • Love this museum! Big enough to host engaging exhibits but not so big it's exhausting. Added bonus is the surrounding open space with hiking trails you can make use of after visiting the museum. The on-site restaurant has limited offerings but the food is really good, portions generous and prices reasonable. (Unusual for a museum sit-down dinning room.) Restaurant also has nice views of the Brandywine Creek. Triple A members can get two-for-one tickets, but that isn't mentioned on the website. Less than an hour from Philly and close to West Chester, which has a nice little downtown that's worth checking out. They had to do a lot of recovery work after flooding from hurricane Ida and could use your support.
  • It was nice place amazing stories and amazing art. But there's always a but I didn't appreciate being followed by security. It made really uncomfortable she watched everything thing I did.. I guess I looked shady or something she followed me everywhere I went even to the damn bathroom. I come out of there she standing at end of hall staring me. I should have photograph her following me. Out of everyone there why me and I'm probably the only there with an actual degree and professional art career. If that security women didn't ruin my experience I would give this place a perfect five stars.
