There are displays of the political activities of the era, the music of the era and then memorabilia from the time. The outfitted school bus was such fun! There is a gift shop attached and a...

The museum is very well done and the grounds are immaculate. The Woodstock festival site is protected and left natural which is great. Their remains a special energy at this location....hard to describe.

What a wonderful day visiting The Museum at Bethel Woods. The museum brings you back to the wonderful days of Woodstock. The displays and music are done very well. 3 hours were well spent reminiscing of life and music of the 60's.

This was a spot we needed to see while vacationing in the Catskills. Completely worth the trip and a great lesson in a huge part of our country's history. So glad we made it. In addition to the regular portion of the Woodstock Museum, there was a special exhibit showcasing the Civil Rights movement with the photography of Grey Villet.... More

It's a small museum so I thought we would only need a small amount of time; I was wrong. You can easily spend 2 or 3 hours without much effort. The different videos and movies shown in the museum are intriguing and expanded my impressions of the festival. If I'm honest, I am the opposite of what I thought Woodstock... More
