My husband went to the original Woodstock, so he was able to add an even more personal perspective to our visit. There were lots of young people there who were super interested to know what "it was really like." My husband was happy to share....More

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Woodstock Museum is a small museum a few minutes from the town of Woodstock. I've noticed that some of the reviews and photos here are actually for the museum located at the site of the Woodstock concert, not this museum. That museum...More

My wife, father in law and brother in law just visited and were surprised. It was moving and being on the field and standing in the place where the stage was felt eerie and wonderful. Highly recommended stop for people of the sixties and seventies.

Wouldn't even let us in! Drove specifically to see it. No hours are posted anywhere. What a disappointment! Guess we weren't stoned enough for the toasted guy on the road that was blocking the roadway in. Some way to treat people!More

It is by donation. He asked for a $10 donation. It wasn't worth $10 in my opinion. Go see the Museum at Bethel Woods for an excellent museum on Woodstock Music Festival.

I am not able to answer you. I think the couple who own and run the museum travel away during the winter but I am not sure when they leave. You can call as he is very good at returning calls. Good luck.
