Berkshire Museum Offers Plenty of February Break Fun
February 21 - 26
Berkshire Museum is offering a host of special events, family performances, and fun activities throughout February’s school vacation week. According to the museum, much of the early buzz has revolved around a special presentation on Tuesday, February 22 at 1 p.m., when a real, live kangaroo will be on hand, along with some other friends from his “neighborhood.” Other events include BTF Plays! performing History’s Mysteries each day at 11 a.m.. Museum visitors can also enjoy Escher’s Animals at 1 p.m. on Monday through Friday of vacation week.
Two camps will be offered during the week as well: Movie Camp at the Museum runs from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and is for grades 3 to 6. From plot to popcorn, campers write the script, make costumes, play the parts, and operate the cameras. Cost is $225 ($195 for members).
The second camp, Museum Magic, is designed for children in kindergarten through second grade. Kids will take a safari through the museum’s collection, getting an up-close view of the M.C. Escher: Seeing the Unseen exhibit. Art projects, games, storytelling, and aquarium adventures inspired by Escher are a few other highlights. The camp runs 9 a.m. - noon Monday through Friday and cost is $125 ($100 members).
