This museum is a unique and incredible place, enchanting visitors with the history of the Adirondacks as told through modern exhibition galleries and historic buildings. Nestled on a hillside with Blue Mountain Lake below, the museum’s campus is vast and green. The exhibits tell the story of the Adirondacks; from logging and ecology to boating and recreational activities, the Adirondack Museum is both educational and entertaining. The property also hosts a decommissioned fire tower that offers views of the expansive grounds and the central trout pond. A cafe with some great gourmet options and a gift shop with Adirondack-themed curios and pieces from local artists are located on the premises as well.
