The Brandywine River Museum of Art offers a unique combination of art and nature, creating a beautiful and unique location for your wedding or special event. Imagine your event riverside and surrounded by an internationally renowned collection of art.
The Museum is available for weddings and private events for any four-hour block from 6 p.m. until midnight, for $2,500. During your event, our six galleries are open for you and your guests to enjoy, for two consecutive hours. Up to 120 guests can be accommodated for a seated dinner and up to 300 with a hors d'oeuvres & cocktail-only reception.
If you are planning to have only a ceremony here, the fee is $1,500 for a 90-minute rental of the courtyard and special exhibition gallery. This includes set-up and removal of chairs. If your reception will also be at the Museum, the cost of having a ceremony here is an additional $500.
The Museum's in-house caterer offers many delicious food choices, for either a seated dinner or a stations presentation. Seated dinner packages begin at $170 per person (based on 80 guests); stations dinner packages begin at $155 per person (based on 80 guests).

Brandywine was one of the most unique, beautiful winter venue to have a black tie wedding event! Rebecca Bucci who coordinated everything down to communicating with all my vendors just to relieve any last minute stressors was fabulous! Many of my guests were raving about coming back to the museum to spend more time to see the exhibits as well as enjoying the scenery on their own; I was delighted. I could have not asked for better service, a more unique gorgeous reception, or better food and drink! THANK YOU to the staff and Rebecca for making a memorable night for my now husband and I as well as for our guests!!! And FYI... anyone who is looking for a December wedding... Brandywine does a phenomenal job decorating for xmas all that is needed is bringing in your own florist for the tables! :-)

Great venue to accommodate a diverse amount of guests. Weddings can can be held inside or outside. Great for our ceremony as well as our reception.

The Brandywine River Museum as the place for our ceremony and reception could not have been more lovely at Christmas time.
In addtion, the event coordinator, Rebecca Bucci and the caterer, Brock and Company could not have been easier to work with. Everyone could not stop talking about the food and Rebecca easily managed the whole event from start to finish flawlessly - she was such a delight to work with - very easy going, easy to communicate with, knowledgable and flexible.
