Register for Courses

December 7 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

Brandywine River Museum of Art

Come explore the enchanted world that is the Brandywine River Museum of Art during the holiday season! Our guides will lead us on a tour through the museum, showcasing the highlights of the museum’s collection devoted to American art with a particular emphasis on art of the Brandywine region: landscape, still life, trompe l’oeil, illustration, and work created by three generations of the Wyeth family. We will then learn about what is known as the “holiday critters,” thousands of whimsical critters displayed on towering trees that soar up through the museum’s three-story atrium. We will end our tour at the O-gauge model train display; a visitor’s favorite!

Following our guided tour, participants will have an additional two hours to eat lunch and explore the museum before departing on the shuttle to return home. In your free time, you are welcome to explore the museum and browse the special exhibition, “Fragile Earth,” which will showcase the diverse approaches taken by ecologically concerned artists of today. This was created to illustrate the powerful role artists play in advocating for environmental causes.

Please note: This tour is limited to 30 persons – 20 of whom can ride the shuttle. You may order a boxed lunch at the time of Living U registration, which includes a choice of sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie, and iced tea or lemonade. You are also free to bring your own packed lunch. The cost for the tour and shuttle is $28.00; the cost of the tour is only $16.00 per person. Boxed lunches cost $12.00. The Brandywine River Museum of Art is located at 1 Hoffman Mill’s Road, Chadd’s Ford, PA.
