Adirondack Experience logoBlue Mountain Lake, NY – February 12, 2024 – The Adirondack Experience Museum (ADKX) is excited to announce their upcoming Total Solar Eclipse Experience event on Monday, April 8, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM! This special program will allow guests to celebrate the arrival of this rare astrological phenomenon, which will be coming through the Adirondack region that afternoon and won’t happen again for 300 years.

“The Adirondack Experience will be opening its campus for members, longtime museum friends, and new visitors to observe and celebrate this extraordinary occurrence,” said ADKX Public Programs Manager Elizabeth Belyea. “When the clock strikes 2:12 PM, we’ll all put on our eclipse glasses to experience this spectacular event together.”

Guests who register for this once-in-a-lifetime event will be able to enjoy a stellar view of the total solar eclipse from the museum’s scenic campus overlooking Blue Mountain Lake. Other activities include eclipse art activities, yoga, campfire & s’mores, food trucks, music, a NASA livestream of the eclipse, commemorative photo-ops, and more. Free eclipse glasses and guaranteed on-site parking are included with ticket purchase.

The parking lots on the grounds of the ADKX will be available to event ticket-holders only. The museum appreciates everyone’s cooperation in this matter and recommends those looking for alternative plans to visit for more local options. Those planning on attending the experience are encouraged to take the necessary precautions on the day of the event. Tourism to the Adirondack region is expected to be very high, and those travelling long distances should leave at an earlier time to avoid potential traffic-related incidents.
