As those familiar with the region are already well aware, the Berkshires boast some world-class museums, with Chesterwood, The Clark, Mass MoCA and the Norman Rockwell Museum being standouts in particular. For those who have been to the household names before or for anyone looking to experience the arts scene in a slightly different way, Schantz Galleries in Stockbridge is a gem.
Schantz is a museum in everything but name; inside, visitors can experience the work of 50+ internationally recognized glass artists, including some of the best known in the world. The artistic contributions cover a remarkable range of styles and subjects, giving guests plenty to see in one afternoon. To stay in town, The Stockbridge Country Inn is a comfy option.
