We went to this battlefield park while traveling in the Brandywine Valley area. This is certainly a large part of the American revolution history, and the small museum has much of the history, some recovered artifacts, and the obligatory gift shop. Certainly worth the stop...More

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 Battle of Brandywine was a very important battle in the Revolutionary War. The colonies were outmaneuvered and lost the battle but were able to show they could fight decisively against the larger and more disciplined British. The battlefield visitor's center has an informative film...More
