Hours & Admission

Display Gardens & Visitor Center

The Garden is open from 9 am – 5 pm daily through October 31, and open off-season free of charge, weather permitting. Timed admission ticketing is required for all visitors. Plan your visit!

Accessibility: Berkshire Botanical Garden’s 24 acres are generally wheelchair friendly with paths through many parts of the Garden in addition to  manicured lawns throughout many other areas. The terrain is variable and some gardens are only accessible by stone steps, although these areas are viewable from multiple points. Seating is available throughout the Garden. Many of our paths are accessible for people with disabilities. Wheelchairs are available with advanced reservation by calling 413 320-4794.

Visiting information:  Access and admission to the Garden is obtained through the Visitor Center, which also offers snacks, cold beverages, as well as gifts, garden-related items and souvenirs. While the Garden often has farm animals on site when our Farm in the Garden Camp is in session, BBG is a public garden and  dogs are not permitted on the grounds (with the exception of registered service animals). We welcome and encourage visitors to take their time at the Garden–there are tables and benches throughout the property for picnics, and trash/recycling stations at the Education Center, Visitor Center, and near the Center House. Please, no smoking on the grounds.
