2 Museums in New York Among Best in the Country
Two museums in New York have the honor of being named among the ten best in the country. One is for play and one is for music.
#4 The Museum at Bethel Woods - Bethel, New York
One of the best music museums in the country is at Bethel Woods, home to the most famous 3-day music festival in history. It came in at number four on the USA Today 10 Best list.
Relive the Past
Some people visit the museum at Bethel Woods to relive the past. Others go 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. 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.
Museum opens on April 1, 2023
Adults: $19 advance/$21.69 walkup
