On-Site Accessibility at Jacob’s Pillow

Jacob’s Pillow is dedicated to fostering a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for patrons visiting our grounds as well as our website. We are committed to growing our organization in ways that make it possible for all to feel welcomed.

Jacob’s Pillow is located in the hilly, rocky terrain of Becket. MA. We have made improvements to our campus, but physical access varies across our facilities. Efforts to increase access are ongoing.
