Programs at Bethel Woods

PLAY on the field

Museum Education and Creative Programs provide the foundation for Bethel Woods Center for the Arts mission-based initiatives that celebrate our heritage and help build creative capital by inspiring individuals to contribute positively to the world around them.

We believe that arts and culture are critical to the strength of a community, and Bethel Woods seeks to be a convener, innovator, and destination for programming that connects people through shared experiences and creative learning. Through the unique lens of our historic site and museum collections, visitors can explore themes of art, music, social and civic engagement shaped by the era of the 1960s.

Special exhibitions, festivals, workshops, performances, films, and cultural events, provide diverse and engaging programs for audiences of all ages.

If you have any questions about our Museum Education and Creative Programming, please email education@bethelwoodscenter.org.
