Woodstock Museum at Bethel Woods

Posted By on Fri, Oct 18, 2013 at 9:00 AM

No photography allowed inside.

Bethel, the site of the actual 1969 Woodstock concert is about a 90 minute ride from the town of Woodstock. I was excited to finally go as it has been on my list of things to see here in the Hudson Valley for awhile now. The Museum at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts was very easy to find.

The Museum at Bethel Woods was rather empty which was good as we had the kids with us. Although I didn't see any other kids there, the museum is surprising kid-friendly, and I couldn't find anything inappropriate on exhibit. There are no cameras or cell phones allowed in the museum, and the place is spotless. According to the brochure, there are 20 films, though I only saw a few of them. There is one film that plays in a 1960s period bus, which was fun to watch. There is also a film that plays in a panoramic style open cinema. You can enjoy this short film while you relax in bean bags on the cushy carpeted floor.

Besides all the cool photographs and memorabilia on the main floor, there is a Special Collection downstairs adjacent to the restrooms which shouldn't be missed. There is a small cafe with a limited menu by the entrance too. Of course, the gift shop is located by the exit/entrance, and there are a ton of expensive groovy souvenir to purchase.
