Well done. We enjoyed the exhibit downstairs - which is always changing. The technology used to share the Woodstock experience is well done.

This was the second time I've visited the Museum at Bethel Woods. This time I brought my grown children. Wonderful memories of the time period I grew up in - the Woodstock generation. Museum is interesting for all ages.

Although I was way to young to have known much about Woodstock Music Festival in 1969, I have heard about it my whole life of 59 years. The Museum is outstanding. The history of the festival plus "The Times The Are A Changing", of the Woodstock Generation........ forget Baby Boomers- We are the flower children who wanted to give peace... More

We were staying in the Pocono's and a friend told me about this museum. It was only about a 45 minute car ride from Hawley Pa and a perfect day to visit a museum- a little chilly overcast and light rain. There was plenty of parking and the grounds were beautiful and obviously well kept. Inside the museum, along with... More

We truly enjoyed our trip here to the museum, from the special exhibit showing clothing of musicians from the 60s and 70s, through all of the Woodstock film footage, the stories from people who were there, the memorabilia, it was an experience, and visiting the site of the original concert was great too!

I was a little too young to understand Woodstock. I knew it was a big event when it was happening, by listening to my parents and it being discussed on the news. What a great vault of history this museum has! It filled in a lot of the blanks for me such as how it got started, all of the... More

Went last week after I went to the Dancing Cat Saloon. So much history. So much information and learning for my children. Very family friendly. It's a great way to spend the day with the family

My son played a baseball tourney in Cooperstown in August. On our way back to NYC to fly home, "I" decided that we would make a side trip to "The Museum at Bethel Woods". My wife and son were less than thrilled to do so. It was a little off of our main route, but the drive was nice and... More

Never got to the Festival,even though I tried. The museum almost made up for it. Great displays, movies and history all in one place. Very nicely done. A must for anyone who lived through the 60' or just wants to experiance that Era.

This was a cool place. All the pictures, videos, and exhibits were amazing. To hear the musicians that were there and listen to the people tell what it was like was great. To hear the planning and the reasons behind it was something I did not know. Loved it.
