The Museum at Bethel Woods & Historic Site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Those who attended Woodstock say the experience transformed them, and it still has the power to inspire and transform you. The Museum at Bethel Woods recreates the sights, sounds, and spirit of the festival through interactive exhibits, rare festival footage, artifacts and memorabilia, and personal stories. It also preserves the historic site and offers inspiring programs which share the struggles and ideals of the era—from segregation to civil rights, peace and love to assassinations and war, music to pop culture. Just down the hill from The Museum, the Woodstock festival field remains peaceful and green, largely untouched nearly half a century later. Close your eyes and it’s as though you can feel the rain on your skin, hear Janis or Jimi, and understand how one person can make a difference and together we can change the world. Visit bethelwoodscenter.org for more information, including upcoming events and hours of operation. Open April through December 31; check website or call for days/hours.
