Where else can you get this view? Watch the canoes and kayaks float down the Brandywine while enjoying lunch. It is rarely crowded. Food is far better than most museum fare (except maybe Phila. Art Museum when I was last there). Reasonable priced, seasonal menu...More

Have not been to Barnes museum in Philadelphia, but Wyeth works are likely different except maybe when Brandywine museum loans out works from its permanent collection.
