Here the legends of the 1960s come to life

Some visit to relive the past and their journey to Woodstock. Others come to experience what it was like for the first time. As you step inside the exhibit you hear the echo of 450,000 chanting “no rain” and see the stories of those who were actually there. As you travel through the exhibit, you travel through time as the Vietnam War unfolds and the Summer of Love blooms. All culminating in the Woodstock festival. Through artifacts, films, music - and even a hippie bus - you will be inspired not only by what was the most prolific three-day festival in history, but by the ideals that still remain relevant today. Purchase your ticket here.

Explore the West Coast from our corner of East Coast beauty.

Included in regular admission | $5 standalone.

The 2021 Special Exhibit, Lights, Color, Fashion: Psychedelic Posters and Patterns of 1960s San Francisco features far-out clothing, a black light poster room, a light show, and more!

Introducing the first-ever Daisy Drop at Bethel Woods

Thank you for supporting our nonprofit organization!

 

Following Joe Cocker's performance at Woodstock, a helicopter flew over the festival and dropped daisies on the field. More than fifty years later, we are recreating this moment to benefit our nonprofit organization.

Purchase a numbered daisy (golf ball) and join us this August for a live helicopter drop.  The three closest to the pin will win prizes, plus enjoy live music, giveaways, food, and drinks!

All proceeds sustain art education programs, historic preservation efforts, and The Museum at Bethel Woods.
