What is The Museum at Bethel Woods?
The Museum at Bethel Woods explores the unique experience of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair, its significance as a culminating event of a decade of radical cultural transformation, and the legacies of the Sixties and Woodstock today. Through personal stories and profiles, immersive musical and multi-media exhibit displays and experiences, engaging programs, and educational events, The Museum encourages inter-generational dialogue about important ideas and issues relevant to today. It also helps to preserve the historic site on which the Woodstock festival took place.
Can I visit the museum and go to a Pavilion Stage concert on the same day?
Yes, you can visit the museum and attend a Pavilion Stage concert on the same day. Due to popular demand, museum visitation during a Pavilion Stage concert day is high. The Museum at Bethel Woods offers half-priced ($7.50) admission three hours prior to any evening concert. The Museum at Bethel Woods is an immersive, highly interactive experience and we suggest that you plan at least two hours for your visit through the main exhibit gallery.
