Adirondack Experience

The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake

The Adirondack Experience is excited to welcome you back on May 27, 2022!

Come visit us in the heart of the Adirondacks for a truly unique experience. With more than 20 buildings nestled across 120 acres overlooking Blue Mountain Lake, our open-air campus offers everyone something to do. Step into the rich history of this region as you browse the museum, row an authentic guide boat, break up a logjam, climb a classic ADK fire tower, or enjoy a family-friendly hike to Minnow Pond.

We have a full season of programs and events planned for 2022 so stay tuned for updates!
