Really enjoyed the Egyptian Artifacts including and especially the real mummy . The museum is downtown and within walking distance to restaurants and lodging.
An amazing place to take the family. The exhibits are well done and interesting. The mini aquarium is very enjoyable. The museum has some wonderful treasures.
We have been members (we = my wife and I, our daughter and grandsons) for many years now. I feared as the grandsons got older that the Museum would lose it's charm. I was severely mistaken! The constant changing of major exhibits enhances the museums ability to continue to attract us year after year. Keep it up!!

The paper exhibit has areas that allow children and adults to try and create work like that... More
What a homerun! This place has something for everyone--especially kids. Their downstairs aquarium is exciting to see, and their exhibit halls are so well done
The Berkshire Museum is the perfect venue...not too large...a bit of art...a bit of science...a bit of history...and some great interactive experiences for children. Children will not be bored or over-dosed. There is a fascinating exhibit on view now about paper. Sounds strange? It is terrific - a must see. Even this has some activities for children, and there is... More
