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!!

Not sure how the current exhibits will stand up to the inevitable upstaging by the "trees," but today, for us, the Berkshire Museum was amazing. Thank you!!!

We didn't stop here on our last trip to the Berkshires. Glad we did this time. Made for a very enjoyable morning. Paper exhibit is fabulous. Lots of diverse exhibits. No parking lot, so don't waste your time looking for one. Grab a spot on the street - free for 90 min. -don't overstay- heard that they check, so move your car.
