Art Lovers’ Fall Getaway

The Berkshires United States
The Museum of Contemporary Art

Secretly tucked away in the northern Berkshire Mountains is the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, America’s largest center for visual and performing arts.  Kidspace at Mass MoCA is a 3,200 square foot gallery and studio, where families can engage their children in art projects inspired by current exhibitions.  The museum is located near Mohawk Trail State Forest, a scenic drive with enough changing leaves to inspire your next art project.  On the way back home, swing by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge before setting the kids free for applepicking at Hilltop Orchards on the New York border.

Why We Love It

Nature’s fantastic colors do inspire budding artists.  What better way to combine the two?

The Details

Although North Adams is a bit sleepy, the Porches Inn at Mass MoCA is a convenient and cozy overnight option.  This colorfully chic inn enjoys modern simple comforts, has a playground on-site, and is downright affordable.
