Adirondack Museum

Add to Itinerary

Preserving and sharing the history of the people who have lived, worked, and played in the Adirondacks.

One of America's finest outdoor museums and called, "the best of its kind in the world," by the New York Times, the Adirondack Museum is an "Adirondack must-see" Path Through History attraction.

The Adirondack Museum's vast campus features exhibitions in 24 modern galleries and historic buildings from around the Park. The exhibitions tell the unique story of how people have lived, worked, and played in the Adirondacks. You will explore topics ranging from boating, to logging, to Native American arts, and there are daily programs and activities for kids.

With hands-on traditional workshops, special events like the Rustic Furniture Fair, Monday Evening Lectures in the summer, Cabin Fever Sunday lectures in the winter, hikes to historic Minnow Pond, the Lake View Cafe, the Adirondack Museum Store, and so much more, a day at the museum promises an Adirondack experience unlike any other.

The Adirondack Museum will open for it's 59th season on Friday, May 20, 2016. The museum will be open 7 days a week, including holidays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will close for the regular season on Monday, October 10, 2016.
