We went to the actual reenactment the day before so visiting this was especially cool. Very informative. Watched the movie and spent time in museum. Also walked around the houses.

After visiting Valley Forge several years ago, we have wanted to visit Brandywine Battlefield. Nice visitor center with a short movie. Small, informative museum. Two houses to visit.

Since I have difficulties walking I only saw the museum and film. It gave a good summary of a battle that I knew little about.

The "battlefield" is not where the signs take you when visiting here, it's actually a kind of overgrown and patchwork 10 acre site that was washington's headquarters and some other buildings. The roads on the site are not clearly marked, are kind of wonky, and...More
