Visited the Adirondack Museum to learn more about the local history and environment. Lots of different exhibits from natural history to re-constructed historic buildings. Beautifully landscaped around a pond with wonderful views of the lake. Very inspired by Anne Labastille's reconstructed cabin. Sorry not to be able to visit the Minnow Pond Trail because hunting season had started. Didn't enjoy the taxidermy exhibition, just not my thing. Good restaurant with a wide selection.

Normally, museums in relatively remote locations are fun and amuse us for a couple hours. This was much more than we expected. Several buildings with interactive experiences were good. Art and taxidermy were good. Most interesting taxidermy I have ever seen. Was not expecting that. School house, fire tower, camping lodge, train, boats and so much more. Went in expecting two hours of entertainment and probably could have spent 4 or more there.

We had been hiking in the Adirondacks and we stopped on impulse and were rewarded by an outstanding museum devoted to past and present life in the Adirondacks. Tons of exhibits. Craft people. Fun taxidermy exhibit. People thoughts were different in 1900.

This place was recommended to us years ago but we finally had a chance to visit. We come every year to the Adirondack Balloonfest & this year stayed one extra day just so we could visit this museum. The view from the café is almost worth the price of admission. It was interesting to really learn more about the history of this region. It's not a large area so no problem for 2 old folks like us to walk around & do everything in a day. The path to the lake was closed though due to hunting which was unfortunate for us.

Coming to visit the Adirondacks we were advised that the Adirondack Experience was a must see. It's not. It's big and fancy but more multi-media than authenticity. The only thing worthwhile here is the Boats & Boating area. Save the $20 and go paddle a canoe.
