Special hours will be in effect this week as the Berkshire Museum prepares for the grand reopening Friday of its fully renovated second floor with five new exhibitions.

The museum closed early Sunday, at 4 p.m., and will remain closed to the public Monday through Thursday.

During the closure, Berkshire Museum members are invited to enjoy special Member Preview Days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Tickets and information are available at berkshiremuseum.org.

Beginning Monday, all Berkshire Museum visitors ages 2 and older will be required to wear protective face coverings throughout their visit and will not be permitted inside the building without a mask or other suitable face covering.

The switch to mandatory masking comes in response to recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance and changing COVID-19 conditions in the region.
