|Wilmington, Delaware The 2015 Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport is now available for purchase. The Passport provides one-time admission to 11 of the Brandywine Valley’s most prestigious attractions between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Participating attractions include the Brandywine River Museum of Art, Delaware Art Museum, Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, Delaware Museum of Natural History, Hagley Museum and Library, Longwood Gardens, Mt. Cuba Center, Nemours Mansion & Gardens, Rockwood Museum and Park and Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library. On various visits to the Brandywine area we have visited all of these attractions and they are wonderful. Also having so much to see in such a compact area means you don’t spend half your day driving to find places. Please note that the Delaware History Museum is closed until early 2016 for major improvements, but the Passport is good at the Read House & Garden in Historic New Castle.
