Winter is still not letting up even though it’s already late February and everyone is expecting temperatures that are at least above freezing. When cabin feveryou’re hooked at home all weekend, it can definitely be a long and hard decision to even get out of the house. The winter blues that you’re experiencing is normal — who dares to venture outdoors and get frostbitten?

But it’s not healthy to stay glued to your couch when you can do more exciting stuff that does not involve trekking in the snow. The Berkshires has lots of indoor activities for you and the family so you won’t have to hate winter after all.


Not your ordinary traditional museum, Animagic may be small but features a plethora of visual effect models and techniques used in movies like Predator and The Matrix. In the animation workshop, the guide will lead you through the creation of a clay character and then later make a short film out of these characters. The founder of the museum, Eugene, is a great entertainer and filmmaker as well so you’ll be sure to learn a lot from him. Animagic is open all-year round but appointments are required.

Everything is well planned and laid out and there are also flower shows for every season. Entrance is free but donations are welcomed.
