Beginning February 15, the Brandywine River Museum of Art closed to the public to undergo facility renovations to its second and third floors. Upgrades include a complete refurbishment of the restrooms, making them fully ADA accessible, as well as switching their current location with the second floor Strawbridge Gallery. Opening into the Museum’s central atrium, the reimagined Gallery will improve circulation within the Museum building and enhance the visitor experience. Additionally, new state-of-the-art lighting, HVAC and fire suppression systems will be installed.
The Museum will be reopening to the public in June with its new special exhibition, Ralston Crawford: Air & Space & War. During its time of closure, the Museum will continue to offer a full slate of virtual programming through its Brandywine at Home initiative.
The Brandywine will be extending all memberships for the length of time that the building is closed for these exciting facility upgrades.
