Only $35 for a single adult pass, or $75 for a family of five, the Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport buys you a one-time admission into eleven of Greater Wilmington’s most exciting and engaging attractions.  Separate admission into each attraction would cost hundreds of dollars, not including food or drink.  The passport will save you a ton of money, and is valid for the entire summer from May25th through September 2nd.

Because the passport is valid for over three months, the adventures can be spread out over the entire season.  Learn about the area’s rich history at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, the Hagley Museum and Library, the Delaware Historical Society, and the Brandywine River Museum.   Each museum offers its own unique exhibits and attractions.

Then you could immerse yourself in paintings and sculptures at the Delaware Art Museum and the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts.   Check out 1,000+ acres of gardens, forest, and nature at Longwood Gardens, then the native flora preserve at the Mt. Cuba Center.   Also included in the package is admission to Nemours Mansion & Gardens, Rockwood, and the Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library.  The best thing is that you don’t have to choose which place to visit, you can visit them all!

Whether you are planning activities for the entire family, or want to make this the best summer ever, getting a Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport is a great way to begin!
