PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Museum will implement its third phase of reopening Monday, Sept. 14.
The Berkshire Museum, which began a phased reopening on Aug. 1, will start phase of their reopening process that will bring changes to the museum’s available gallery experiences.

In addition to the museum’s Aquarium, exhibitions on view will now include "Berkshire Backyard," "Rocks and Minerals," "Animals of the World in Miniature" and the "Feigenbaum Hall of Innovation."
