Every year, the Brandywine River Museum of Art brings the holiday cheer with its whimsical mini train display. Although this year will be a little different—the setup has been modified to allow for easier social-distancing—Holiday Magic at Brandywine is back! And it’s running at the museum until January 10th.
Since the Brandywine River Museum of Art is just a short drive from The Greentree Building, consider adding a trip to Holiday Magic to your slate of annual traditions. It showcases the same 0-gauge display that debuted nearly 40 years ago—including a teensy holiday village, a carnival, and a drive-in movie theater. However, this year, you’ll see a few new additions! The Wyeth children (sons of well-known American artist Andrew Wyeth) have contributed their historic train sets to Holiday Magic at Brandywine. They feature rocky foothills, an industrial town, and even a bridge modeled after a New York City landmark. Tickets are $18 for adults and are timed to decrease capacity and allow for social-distancing. Guests are expected to wear face coverings at all times.
