    Check out all the fun family events at the Norman Rockwell Museum. It has become one of our favorites in the Berkshires. The Clark and MoCA also have great opportunities for families especially the Clark’s free family days and MoCA’s Kidspace. Another hidden treasure in the Berkshires the North Adams Museum of History and Science. It’s free and one can find hours of hands-on fun for the whole family there.

    Lily and I went to MASS MoCA yesterday, thanks to the Hilltown Families contest that provided us the membership! We especially enjoyed the gigantic art installations. Lily decided that the Sol LeWitt exhibit was her new house and announced the purpose of each “room” as we made our way amongst the many lines and colors. We also decided that the large, open spaces were especially suited to impromptu dancing.

    The Springfield Museums. We always like the Science museum, but last time we went through the Smith museum and looked at the Samurai gear and the large sculptures. We have a membership and it is soooooo worth it!
