It was a wonderful experience. We spent an afternoon, but you could spend a whole day and on weekends an evening concert as well.

This music museum provides all the information and "interaction" of music/musicians who ruled the world of "rock & roll" in the 60's & 70's! There is also a 20 minute video of Woodstock, and a gift shop in the museum. I highly recommend Bethel Woods for their museum, beautiful countryside and wonderful concerts. If you like old time Rock &... More

We visited the museum before a concert we were attending. We loved the museum! Lots to look at. I learned a lot about Woodstock that I didn't know before. There are some videos to watch, and even a mini movie-theatre inside. We spent about an hour at the museum. There is a café and a store at the museum. I... More

Hey all you hippies! What a tremendous job they did with this museum! Go and enjoy how it was "back in the day". Bought back lots of memories... Plus gives the young ones an opportunity to see first hand a little of what "we" were like when we were young.

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!
