I have been here several times. It's a great historical accounting of Woodstock, along with some wonderful artifacts and sound bites. If you're in the area, you HAVE to visit here!

Do not even think of visiting on an afternoon that they have a concert scheduled as they don’t care about your patronage on these days. I could not feel like a less appreciated customer at this museum. We arrived at 3 o’clock on a Friday...More

Loved our visit to the Museum. It was quite a history lesson of the 60s. It really helped build the situation as what led up to Woodstock. So many things in the museum helped imagine what it would have been like to be there. Amazing...More

Went to Bethel Woods last night to see Lynyrd Skynyrd. Had to stand all the way in the back because they wouldn’t sell us lawn chairs (and your not allowed to bring your own). The grass was wet, so sitting on the ground was not...More

The beautiful building houses a museum and a 400 seat conservatory. There are videos, posted timelines and a large variety of artifacts not only from the 1969 event but 60s/70s time frame as well. There are docent tours of the museum (call for time) and...More
