What people are saying

A great place

“Awesome mix. The aquarium on the bottom floor was great, along with the rock and mineral section. Ancient History Replica art/sculptures, ancient zoology, early technology innovations, and more. Great place for those who gently respect and appreciate museum artifacts.”

– Chris Robin

A great find

“This was a great find! My fiancée and I stopped in here while in Pittsfield and I was intrigued by the fact that the Berkshire Museum is part Natural History Museum, part Art Museum, and part Aquarium. They have a nice geology section and a collection of preserved animals. The aquarium was great and had a lot of turtles (my favorite), and the art section had a nice mix of American Indian and classical art (including a mummy!). Easily worth the admission price.”

Loved how interactive it all was

“There was so much to see. My kid’s favorite was the galactic room with glass renderings from local artist Josh Williams. My kids loved the hands-on stuff. My husband is a Civil War/American history fan and there was plenty for him to see as well. Loved how interactive it all was. So happy we came and will definitely return!”
