Our family was visiting the Adirondacks for an extended stay for the first time this summer. We thought that the Adirondack Museum would give us a fuller appreciation of the region we were visiting. What a fantastic museum! The exhibits were put together with great care and variety, so you did not feel that you were moving from one glass display to the next. You could climb a firetower, walk through a one room schoolhouse, admire beautiful boats, walk through a private railroad car, and see video of loggers from long ago. An exhibit about Teddy Roosevelt's ride to the Presidency after the death of President McKinley was especially interesting. And the views of Blue Mountain Lake from the museum grounds were beautiful. There are so many interesting areas to explore that you should devote at least half a day to this experience. Food was available and reasonably priced. My only complaint, though minor, is that the pricing in the gift shop was expensive. Overall a wonderful experience!
