Amherst College Beneski Natural History Museum

Spring is around the corner, but winter is still with us. If, on one of our upcoming cold days you’re looking for something that will keep you indoors, stop by the Beneski Natural History Museum at Amherst College in Amherst, MA.

On a very memorable and stormy day last summer I had the good fortune of visiting the museum with a waterlogged group of campers, and it was a highlight of our trip. Filled with dinosaur skeletons, geological samples that explain the complex history of the Connecticut River Valley, as well as the worlds largest collection of dinosaur tracks (all from the valley), this is a place to spend hours exploring the areas natural history.

Admission is free, but the hours are limited; visit their website to learn more.
