We’re welcoming our community once again.

The Berkshire Museum will begin a phased reopening of our downtown Pittsfield location on August 1, 2020.

Saturday, August 1 through Saturday, August 15 will be reserved exclusively for Berkshire Museum members. To become a member or renew your existing membership, please click here.

Your health and safety are our primary concern. We intend to meet or exceed all state-mandated health and safety guidelines through each reopening phase. Beginning August 1, guests will be welcomed back to the museum with a series of new health and safety protocols in place including new and improved cleaning procedures, time-based advance ticketing that reserves each exhibition for one “family unit” – a group that has been quarantining together – at a time, mandatory face coverings, social distancing between visitors and staff, and more.
