Wilmington, Delaware (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
The Brandywine Museums & Gardens Alliance is entering year five of its annual Treasure Trail Passport Program, offering admission discounts to eleven Brandywine Valley attractions. The promotion is valid from Saturday, May 25, 2013 (the beginning of Memorial Day weekend) through Monday, September 2, 2013 (Labor Day). For just $35 per adult, or $75 for a family of two adults and up to three children, visitors receive a Brandywine Treasure Trail Map and a passport good for one-time admission at each of these eleven Brandywine Valley Museums and Gardens: 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, Nemours Mansion & Gardens, Rockwood Park & Museum, and Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library. The sites are all within a ten-mile radius centered near Wilmington, Delaware.
“We are pleased that we were able to keep the Passport price the same as in 2012, saving families up to $380, and individuals up to $94," says Sara Teixido, Alliance chair.
“Whether you’re looking for a creative gift, planning a summer getaway, or simply want to spend the summer enjoying the gems in your own backyard, this is a sweet deal,” Teixido adds. “And with all the gardens, museums, and historic sites conveniently clustered within a ten-mile radius, it’s easy for a traveler to visit all eleven sites in a week or even a long weekend.”
The passport program is funded, in part, by the Greater Wilmington Convention & Visitors Bureau. Media sponsorship is provided by Delaware Today and Main Line Today.
Passports are non-refundable and non-transferable. If lost or stolen, passports cannot be replaced. Valid for one general admission visit at each site. Passports are only valid May 25—September 2, 2013, regardless of purchase date. Not valid for special events or tours. Blackout dates and other restrictions apply; guests are encouraged to visit our website or call specific attractions for details. Reservations are required at Nemours Mansion & Gardens and at Mt. Cuba Center (closed August).
Passports are available now at http://www.brandywinetreasures.org and will be available May 25, 2013 at all eleven member sites and at the Greater Wilmington Convention & Visitors Bureau.
