Berkshire Museum invites young visitors to celebrate the wonder of snow and create winter weather-inspired arts and crafts, conduct experiments to learn how snow forms and falls, drop by the story corner for tales of winter, and watch The Snowy Day – a short film adapted from the iconic 1962 Caldecott-winning picture book by Ezra Jack Keats.

The museum suggests the ativities are open to all ages and may best be enjoyed by ages 4 to 12 with caregiver.

The museum’s new winter exhibit, Museum of the Moon, brings an installation of lunar views and glowing moonlight by UK artist Luke Jerram and an ethereal soundscape by award-winning composer Dan Jones, bringing together science, starlight and celebratory seasonal fun.

Museum of the Moon is an exact replica of Earth’s moon, a gently glowing orb suspended in midair. Jerram created the installation using NASA imagery of the lunar surface, hoping to inspire those who experience it to contemplate the many ways the moon connects humankind across time and culture.

The museum will hold eventsaround the exhibit, from family-friendly magic shows and activities to Paint & Sip, choral music, morning classes from Radiance Yoga, poetry, or a screening of a new documentary about NASA astronauts, The Wonderful, followed by discussion with astronaut Cady Coleman and Josh Simpson, a deep space and cosmos-inspired glass artist.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
