Jackson Prew, age 2, along with his mother, Kristie, explores “Voyage to the Deep” at the Berkshire Museum, which simulates the Nautilus from Jules Verne's "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea."

The Berkshire Museum announced Monday that it is no longer requiring museum visitors to wear masks or show proof of vaccination. 

"However, museum staff will continue to wear face coverings and encourage any unvaccinated visitors or those who have a weakened immune system or are at increased risk for severe disease due to age or an underlying medical condition or have someone in their household with a weakened immune system, to do the same," a news release said.
