Construction Notice: Facility renovations and improvements are now underway at the Berkshire Museum. These include improving energy conservation measures throughout the Museum’s systems and infrastructure; installing a new passenger-operated elevator; and making lighting improvements to the Ellen Crane Memorial Room. The Museum will be open to the public during the construction period, which is expected to continue through May.
A complete roster of exhibitions, education programs, and public programs will be scheduled for the period of February through May 2014. However, during renovations, some galleries may be temporarily closed and access to the second floor may be limited to stairs during specific periods. Call Guest Services at 413.443.7171.ext. 10 for program and accessibility updates.
We ask for your patience while construction projects are under way. Once they are complete, the Museum will have made vast improvements in our energy footprint and created a more satisfying experience for museum-goers.
