When arriving at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in a tour bus, school bus, or shuttle van, please have the driver follow these directions:
- From Route 1, turn (red arrow) onto Hoffman’s Mill Road and enter the Museum parking lot (first right.)
- Proceed to the second left, turn and proceed to the next left to the drop off area in front of the Museum for both the accessible and main entrances.
- After all visitors have exited the bus or van, the driver should proceed to the first left
- (black arrow) to return to Hoffman’s Mill Road, then left to the Museum parking lot area to park.
- The designated parking area for buses and vans is in the last bay on the right, near Route 1. Most drivers prefer to back in to this parking space so the vehicle is facing the Museum building and can easily pull forward to the front of the Museum when it is time to pick up passengers at the entrance when the visit is complete.
- When leaving the Museum, follow the path of the green arrow to travel South on Route 1; or turn left (blue arrow) back onto Hoffman’s Mill Road to turn right onto Route 1 North.
