Berkshire Museum Tom Patti Commission 2

Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation

The Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation is an exciting, 3,000-square-foot interactive exhibition that celebrates the many innovators and innovations that have originated in the Berkshires and transformed the world.


From the first electrical transformer to the dance of Ted Shawn, the exhibit explores science, technology, culture, and history. The goal is for visitors to take inspiration from innovators of all ages and walks of life, from the past to the present, exploring the unique nature of innovation and how the Berkshires has played a world-wide role in how we live our lives.

Experience innovations in science, technology, business, politics, culture, and the arts through original historical artifacts, works of art, video, and hands-on, interactive experiences for the whole family. Encounter the past, present, and future from telegraphs to blogs, from paper to plastics, from skiing to movie special effects in the Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation.

Visitors step into the role of innovator through interactive stations in the exhibition as well as in related educational programming, including the exciting Use Your Noodle!, a curriculum guide and design challenge that will have students thinking out of the box, and, yes, using their noodles.

Made possible by the Feigenbaum Foundation.

Overview

The Berkshire Museum was founded as a “window on the world”—both to serve as a window for Berkshire County residents to learn about arts and technology, history, and science around the globe, and to provide the rest of the world a look into the Berkshires.
