  • They have natural history, science, technology and art exhibits that are very well thought out and suitable for all ages. Takes 1-2.5 hours to go through. Only complaint is trying to find parking for it is sometimes difficult because it's right on the main strip and there is no parking lot.
  • Liked the VR room, the guitars exhibit was awesome. There are many hands-on activities. Nice to be able to strum the guitar. Many things for kids of all ages.
  • Excellent place for learning and exploration of culture. I personally would love to acquire the Freemason building currently for sale across the street to dedicate to the sciences and cosmos and construct a planetarium to dedicate to the children of the Berkshires. For a discount rate for entry to the Berkshire Museum bring your library card or your EBT card. Wonderful place but could use some more scientific content and more art/cultural exhibits.
  • This is the most bare musuem I have ever visited. It must have been grand at some point in history as the building itself is impressive.
  • A great small museum. Eclectic holdings.
