Once again I spent forever trying to research something and not get a straight answer from any reviewer or official website. I couldn't call the museum at the time as I was researching at night time after it was closed. Anyway, I was trying to figure out if you could visit the Woodstock grounds for free. Turns out you can, I just went up and asked the museum box office. Anyway, the grounds where Woodstock happened are really quite beautiful. Nearby you can go into the woods, again for free, and see the message tree and the Bindy Bazaar, which is decorated nicely. This was a great visit and I certainly appreciate what you can do for free outdoors while the coronavirus disaster is going on. Give it a visit, it will take a good 30 minutes to walk around the two areas. Feel free to park your car a bit further down in the parking lot away from the museum entrance, closer to the Bindy Bazaar woods area. We came away with some great pictures.

Even though I was too young to remember much about the Woodstock Festival, it was very interesting to hear and see pictures, videoclips, exhibits and to learn about the history of this festival. You can also walk through the grounds where it all happened and follow a map to imagine where everything took place. Definitely worth the trip!

The POOR RATING WAS ONLY FOR THIS YEAR. LAST YEAR WAS GREAT! 5 PLUS STARS FOR 2019!!!! This year was a complete disappointment at the museum. This Corona Bologna nonsense is completely out of hand. Over half the displays are missing. Part of the museum was closed off. The Tuetles built a Woodstock bike and it was gone. I asked if they picked up their bike. The person working the door had no clue what I was talking about. What? You work there and don't even know the displays?? I was starving and wanted a Hendrix burger. No hot food. They were offering boring cold sandwiches and salads. Forget that. The gift shop practically tripled their prices. There was a book marked 8.50 and when I got to the counter to pay , the girl rang it up at 74.00. WHAT? Forget that! the book was priced 8 50. The CDs that were 25.00 last year were 40.00 this year. So you can see why I was so unhappy this year. And I love visiting Woodstock. I put the music on my phone and then go out and sit on the hill. You can feel the great spirit in the air.

This museum has it all and it takes you back to the 1960s like no other museum does. On the grounds is the site of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Fair, and also known as Woodstock. It was and still is, the greatest concert (it lasted three days) in music history. The Museum at Bethel Woods covers that time in August of 1969 in a way that you will feel like you were there. Just a great experience and a must-see. George Vreeland Hill

Figure about 2-3 hours for a visit. Watch all the films and soak in the late 60's and great music. Make sure to walk the grounds and see where it all happened.
