Because your event should be a masterpiece!

The Brandywine River Museum offers a unique combination of art and nature, creating a beautiful and unique location for your wedding or special event. Imagine your event riverside and surrounded by an internationally renowned collection of art.

The Museum is available for weddings and private events for any four-hour block from 6 p.m. until midnight, for $2,500. During your event, our six galleries are open for you and your guests to enjoy, for two consecutive hours. Up to 120 guests can be accommodated for a seated dinner and up to 600 with a cocktail-only reception.
