At the Berkshire Museum, there’s something for everyone, with a unique blend of exhibitions, galleries, and attractions for families of all ages.

See exhibitions, fine art, and sculpture from around the world. Explore our touch tank and aquarium. Marvel at the technology that awaits in the new Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation.

Be amazed at our collection of artifacts from Native American cultures and ancient cultures of Egypt, China, and more.

The diverse collections also boast artifacts of ancient history and natural science: fossil collections, a 143-pound meteorite, an Egyptian mummy, shards of Babylonian cuneiform tablets, samplings of early Mediterranean jewelry, and representations of Berkshire ecosystems including local mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, plants, and minerals.

The writing desk of Nathanial Hawthorne and the musket believed to have belonged to Israel Bissell (a cohort of Paul Revere who made a midnight ride to Philadelphia to warn that “The British are coming!”) also are part of the extensive permanent collection.
