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

For the largest Revolt. War battle, this attraction undershoots the mark severely. The little museum and shop, the nice short movie, the stone bldgs, are nice, but that's all there is. This 11-hour battle had some 30,000 soldiers, G Washington, and we lost! There is...More

The visitors center has a museum and a 20 minute video that you can watch for $5/person. This is very informative. You can tour Washington's headquarter and the Gilpin house for an additional fee (guided tour at set times). If you want someone to get...More

Was blown away to learn about this epic battle in the larger context of the Revolutionary War. This was not one they taught you in school. Quite interesting in terms of its location, scale and place in the history books.

Local educational stop for children of all ages. So much history surrounds this area of Pennsylvania. Worth the stop.

For as important a place as Brandywine is, the Battlefield as an attraction felt like a colossal waste of potential. Washington's Headquarters was interesting and all, but the one at Valley Forge was better. The grounds also need better upkeep, as the grass is overgrown....More

We watched the movie and paid for a tour of Washington's headquarters, which was only so-so. You can do a self-guided tour and get as much out of it. I was disappointed that the other buildings were no longer available to tour, but we still...More

Battlefield is small and not much to see or explore, nothing like Gettysburg. It was a very cold day when I visited, so I didn't get to walk around and the visitor center looked closed but I heard it gives you a lot of information...More
