The Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport Promotion sounds a bit like PR, but even a so-called promotion can render a good deal. For those of us who’d rather see art than melt in the sun, a museum is a fine escape. This promotion offers a less expensive way to see 10 formidable venues at reasonable prices. Tickets are $35 for individuals, and $75 for a family of two adults and up to three children.
The 10 Brandywine Valley attractions, combined to form The Brandywine Museums and Gardens Alliance, include the Brandywine River Museum, Delaware Art Museum, Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, Delaware Historical Society & Read House, Delaware Museum of Natural History, Hagley Museum and Library, Longwood Gardens Mt. Cuba Center, Rockwood Museum and Winterthur Museum & Country Estate. All will boast discounts on single-rate admissions through thru September 6.
The plan was successful last summer. Since this year is even more economically difficult, the program could mean more visitors to the venues, which, one would hope, will lead to more visits during the year. If you’re an arts supporter, you know our cultural organizations need support more than ever.
The promotion includes a Brandywine Treasure Trail Map (pictured) and a passport good for one-time admission at the sites.
INFO: Tickets can be purchased at all 10 locations, and also at the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana, the Greater Wilmington Convention & Visitors Bureau (GWCVB), the Brandywine Conference & Visitors Bureau, and the Chester County Conference & Visitors Bureau.
Passports are also available online at the GWCVB Website, at visitwilmingtonde.org.
