Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, with the stegosaurus outside the front door, houses a varied collection assembled a century ago by a local industrialist, Xenas Crane.
Exhibits explore local history, Berkshire innovations and art in a wide range of fields, work by American Indian artists, paintings from the Hudson River School, rotating shows by regional artists and more.
The museum offers exhibitions and activities for visitors of all ages, from fine art and ancient objects to a condensed aquarium and the Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation. It aims to be a community museum: a place where everyone, from toddlers to elders, can learn, play, explore and be invloved.
