  • Great great place for acquiring Woodstock memorabilia if you are into such things as I am. However, be prepared to spend some bank to get such stuff. Personally? If I LOVE it, I'll get it , price is secondary. The museum is cool however, for the reasonable fee to enter, be prepared to spend an hour taking in the iconic photos, the film clips, the bus (a must) and the souvenir shop at the museum end ( though you can hit up the shop w/o the museum.).A positive experience all around, couple it w/ a show...golden.
  • Although I was only 14 when Woodstock was around in 1969, you could really feel as if you were there when walking through the museum. It was not just about Woodstock, it was about the late 50's and 60's and what culture was like leading up to the great 3 day concert. It is well worth the drive for a lovely afternoon in the "holy land" in the Catskill Mountains.
