  • It's Woodstock what more can I say. We spend a day at the museum and the grounds. The museum is well worth the admission price with senior discounts. Don't miss the hippie bus and movie . Excellent...

  • Don't bother going. The museum costs $20.00 each to get in. Other than that, whoever designed this completely missed the true feeling of the Woodstock experience:. Peace, Love, Rock and Roll! The buildings are brown, not bright colors. They're well kept, but they remind me of a rest stop on an interstate highway. There is no Warmth, nothing "Cool", no Peace signs, no Love signs, no 1969 Peter Max or "Groovy" paraphernalia. What a waste of a day. I hope that when they have concerts in the summer it will have some excitement. This was absolutely depressing. Whoever designed this might as well get a job with an Urban Renewal project somewhere else and let some artists decorate this incredible portion of history in the timeframe that made it memorable. Could you imagine if the same builder decided to take some other historical landmarks, gut them and install Formica and stainless steel? This is what they did to Bethel. Very Sad.
  • A little history 101 !!!
