AAA Editor Notes

The Museum at Bethel Woods is off SR 17 exit 104, then 10 mi. w. on SR 17B to 200 Hurd Rd. The museum pays tribute to Woodstock and the turbulent decade in which it occurred. Multimedia presentations, artifacts, interactive exhibits, video testimonies and photographs pertain not only to the legendary 3-day music festival on Max Yasgur's farm, but to the Vietnam War, rock music, civil rights, hippie culture, the Cold War and the space race. Visitors can sit inside a psychedelic bus and watch a film about concertgoers' journeys to Woodstock. Built on the site of the 1969 festival, the museum is part of Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, where multiple stages host year-round indoor and summer outdoor performances as well as festivals. Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
