WHAT:  A Brandywine Christmas
From the spectacular O-gauge model train exhibition with trains running on nearly 2,000 feet of track, to a gallery devoted to a delightful display of rare antique dolls dressed in exquisite period clothing, plus thousands of whimsical Critters (ornaments and decorations handcrafted by Brandywine volunteers from natural materials) displayed on towering trees soaring up through the museum's three-story atrium, A Brandywine Christmas promises wonderful family fun. Several events are planned throughout the season.
