    An American institution up there with Mom's Apple Pie.

    A fascinating journey through US history from the Depression to almost modern day.

    If you have not heard of Norman Rockwell, you will certainly know some of his illustrations and you deserve it to yourself to know more,

    The grounds and gardens are gorgeous. The sculptures made it even better. The tour was very informative and interesting. Docent knew a lot. The cafe has a great view and reasonably priced for what it is. Outdoors has trails and is dog friendly.

    On a beautiful summer evening we enjoyed the performance of Kelly O'Hara in the Seiji Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood. Ms. O'Hara was an outstanding artist who performed many songs from her Broadway shows as well as other songs that had meaning to her. The acoustics in the hall were excellent and made the performance all the better. We had seats on the side of the hall, which resulted in our turning our head to see her perform.
    If a person has mobility issues I do not recommend that they purchase tickets for the second level, in that there is no elevator or escalator to get there.
    Tanglewood is a wonderful performance space. The lawns are magnificent and the views are unmatched. There are many parking lots, so one must be aware of where they parked. A very nice touch is that there are trams supplied for people who need assistance to get to their cars
    A highlight of any summer is to attend a performance a Tanglewood.

    Lovely historic village to explore at your own pace. It's an easy walk around and the circular barn is really cool. There are also some animals you can see.

    James Turrell's Skyspace was BRILLIANT. The dawn event was the most mind-bending, perception challenging, beautiful, meditative and absorbing I have ever had. I would happily do it all again: rouse at 4 am, arrive in the dark, sit in a cold silo with the doors open, and stay stock still for 40 minutes, just to watch it all unfold another time.

    On the other hand, we were less than enthralled with everything else. Perhaps the novelty has worn off for us after having visited before. We felt almost willfully confounded by the nightmare logistics of getting from one building to another. Some color-coded footpaths would be nice.

    Great Views from Summit. Its worth stopping at the Visitor Center prior to driving to the Summit. The tower at the summit is worth climbing. The views are stunning. There is plenty of parking at the summit.

    Unfortunately the gardens were closed for daytime visits when we were in the area during October, but I just wanted to say the Pumpkin Festival was fabulous. So many carved Jack O Lanterns set in beautifully lit grounds. We are not keen on Halloween, but this Festival was so unique to us (being British) and so beautiful, it was on of the highlights of our trip around New England in the Fall.

    My husband and I visited Furnace Brook Winery at Hilltop Orchard during my birthday weekend in the Berkshire and we’re so happy we did. After visiting wineries all over the US, Canada and Europe, we’ve rated it in our top five wineries of all time. The atmosphere at the winery was so welcoming, from the large fireplace to the comfortable seats. Sarah one of the owners served us during the wine and cider tasting. She was so warm, kind, friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell that she absolutely loves what she does every day. The white wines and ciders were some of the best we’ve ever had and the apple cider donuts were so delicious. We can’t wait to visit again. Thank you, Sarah, for your warm hospitality!

    Great for all abilities. I love the beaver ponds near dusk - they seem more active. It’s beautiful scenery year round. The mountain to the fire tower is a great hike with an excellent view- especially in the fall.

    There is a dry erase board outside the office with daily animal sightings. The office staff are always friendly and helpful.

    Often there are scheduled activities for kids. My son loved their summer camp when he was little .

    Restrooms onsite are convenient, too.

    This was a great example of the benefit of having a guided tour, rather than a self guided tour. Our guide Jim, really bought the story of this sculptor to life in a 1 hour visit that passed very quickly- you are then free to retrace your steps and view the exhibits/ spaces at your own leisure.
    An intelligent, humourous and kindly guide, our small group were all most impressed and informed.
