Berkshire Museum announces the second installment of its 120th-anniversary celebration – a captivating exhibition that takes visitors on a journey through the rich history of the Museum and the world during the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Titled 120th: Building the Museum – 1939-1978, this exhibition is set to be on display from October 7, 2023, through January 7, 2024. Focused on the dynamic leadership of Stuart Henry – whose tenure as Director of the Berkshire Museum spanned a total of 39 years. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to step back in time and explore the Berkshire Museum through the headlines, stories, and cultural phenomena that shaped an era. Under Henry’s visionary guidance, the Museum not only weathered the challenges of wartime but also thrived, becoming a cultural hub for the community.
