“Art, history, and natural science.”
In 1903, Berkshire Museum founder Zenas Crane, inspired by such institutions as the American Museum for Natural Science, the Smithsonian, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, decided to blend the best attributes of these establishments in a new museum for the people of Western Massachusetts. Thanks in large part to Crane’s efforts, the broad and varied collections of Berkshire Museum include objects from virtually every continent, from important fine art and sculpture to natural science specimens and ancient artifacts.
Sometimes I can't believe this place is sitting in Pittsfield. They've got awesome interactive exhibits. If you're hear at all around the winter holiday season, you must see their tree exhibit! The basement has an awesome reptile room which is a school trip classic including spiders and a turtles (the tortoise with a diaper just recently passed away). Checkin to see what's scheduled on the big screen or if any special shows are in town.
