The wonder of the holiday season starts early at the Brandywine River Museum of Art this year! On October 31, 2020, visitors can enjoy “Holiday Magic at Brandywine” with the Brandywine Railroad opening—a holiday favorite since 1972. On view through January 10, 2021, this year’s seasonal offerings will also include the return of artist and composer Ann Wyeth McCoy’s dollhouse, which features six rooms filled with three-dozen dolls and hundreds of miniature objects that will delight visitors of all ages.

While slightly modified this year to provide a safe and socially distant experience, the Brandywine Railroad display will still have plenty of model trains, miniature details, and the engaging elements that everyone loves—including interactive components operated by hands-free foot pedals. The iconic O-gauge display will feature trains running on a thousand feet of track through a small village, a drive-in movie theater, and even a carnival. This year the Brandywine will also introduce two model train sets with layouts once owned by Nicky and Jamie Wyeth—sons of the renowned American artist Andrew Wyeth.

Experience the magic of more than 3 million lights illuminating acres of farmland at the Shady Brook Farm Holiday Light Show! Encounter whimsical holiday displays and familiar characters.
Drive through in the comfort of your own car or enjoy the show in a private open-air wagon ride (weather permitting).

This winter, it’s all about outdoor spacious, indoor oasis, and the power of story.

Outside, envelop yourself in a feeling of peace and tranquility with a walk amongst the dramatic silhouettes of trees that stretch far into the sky, as soothing, textural grasses and seed heads guide you along the way. Take time to examine the winter garden's fine details, set against the fresh, crisp air of winter.

Inside, step into a sanctuary of warmth. Look up to an overhead garden of hanging baskets adorned with such vibrant beauties as jasmine, cape-primrose, and lipstick-plant. Find yourself in a paradise of flowers and foliage, bursting with color ... all in a beautiful indoor winter wonderland with a tropical twist.   Timed Tickets Required
