The magic of the holiday season returns to the Brandywine River Museum of Art during Brandywine Christmas, November 29, 2019 through January 5, 2020. This spectacular holiday experience for all ages includes a gallery filled with an expansive model train display; a special exhibition featuring a selection of three beloved fairy tales and their evolution through time and different cultures; towering trees decorated with whimsical Critter ornaments; and a wide selection of holiday events and programs for the whole family.
The Brandywine River Museum of Art’s model train display, a holiday family favorite since 1972, offers something for everyone with its dazzling array of both toy and scale model trains made by Lionel, Williams, Atlas, Mike’s Train House, K-line and others. The Brandywine Railroad features trains running on 2,000 feet of track and includes more than 1,000 pieces, including locomotives, passenger and freight trains, and trolleys that pass through a small town, a farm, factories and even a carnival.
A rich assortment of special holiday events and programs for the whole family will be offered throughout the season, including the Museum’s popular Children’s Christmas Party, Polar Express Read-Aloud, and Breakfast with the Trains.
