For a small(ish) town, this is not a small town museum. Something for everyone. We all enjoyed ourselves very much. They are doing some major updates, can't wait to see what they have done.

When I was a kid I went here often, and as a young adult in my twenties I frequented it often as it was quaint, and had some very nice paintings and sculptures. The main reason I kept going was because it was set up to be free forever by the cranes. The people running it took that away, expressly against the trust fund wishes of the crane foundation, and now it is just another expensive place to go, the magic of philanthropy dead and gone, thanks to greedy administrators. It really was amazing to think you could go for free...just walk in anytime and enjoy it....up until recently. They could have kept it that way....but then no way to generate what they all love most in the end...more money. They are even selling off the best pieces of the crane collection now to get more funds....very depressing.

If you grew up here in the Berkshires, at some point your school would take you to the Berkshire Museum. As a father, I found myself bringing my children to the museum to see new exhibits and art. Always a nice stop on your way, not to big, yet some great art, statues and more. Check their website for what is happing this month.

Went during Feb vacation week - tons of activities for kids. And adults were entertained as well. Very reasonable prices and kids were admitted free. If you have kids under 12 and you are in Pittsfield area do not miss this. Allow about 2-3 hours of time

This was a great little museum! The fee was a little high, but there was plenty to hold our attention. It had many hands on exhibits for students and children. The exhibit showcasing local business people and inventors was especially nice. They have an excellent and comprehensive rock collection that is very well displayed and labelled.
