Took the kids today for Summer Stories and was reminded of how much I love this place! A must see for anyone who is interested in Chester County history in general and the Wyeths specifically. Many original Wyeths and amazing artifacts.

You would hardly know the museum is there (I just happened upon it) but it is a fascinating collection of memorabilia from this man's lifetime. Allow a couple of hours as there is a lot to look at.

My husband and I were looking for a place to go for the afternoon. This museum is a collection of "things" Mr. Sanderson collected - his interests were so varied. The sheer volume in such a small space is mind boggling. I brought home a...More

This museum was a find. It has a very varied and interesting collection of artifacts. It is in a house with 8 rooms each with artifacts dealing with a common theme. There is even some Wyeth family art. I would highly recommend this museum to...More

I have traveled around the world and seen many museums - but nothing has ever moved me like the Christian Sanderson Museum. It is the extraordinary intimacy of the collection - from a scrap of cloth off Lincoln's casket to the Valentines Christian received as...More
