After extensive repair and painting during the fall, the big red barn is the home of the newly-expanded Book Nook. Two big stalls are filled with tons of donated books and magazines.
The Book Nook is open on Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm at the Truman Wheeler Farmstead, 817 South Main Street, Great Barrington, across from the V,F.W. and a short drive south of the Fairgrounds. Don’t let the winter weather keep you from the amazing bargains you’ll find on the packed shelves. You can also add a tour of the Great Barrington Historical Society Museum to your visit.
Once Inside, we’ve got museum-quality lighting and four large rooms of permanent displays. Free tours are on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm and during the week by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 am to noon. However, please note that the Museum will be closed from Thursday, January 28 until Wednesday, February 3rd.
In order to ensure a safe environment for everyone, masks are required for all visitors and staff both in the Museum and on the Farmstead grounds. The GBHS Museum is the first organization in town to proudly display the S.A.F.E. seal, assuring you that all state and local COVID regulations are met.
