Adirondack Experience

The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake

A Warm Adirondack Welcome! ADKX has a season full of exciting and uniquely Adirondack activities for you and your family to enjoy! 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 row an authentic guideboat, break up a logjam, climb a classic ADK fire tower, or enjoy a family-friendly hike to Minnow Pond.

Daily activities mean there’s always something to do

Summer is here, and ADKX offers you and your family a wide range of exciting and uniquely Adirondack activities! Feed the fish, climb a fire tower, hike family-friendly trails, or enjoy games, toys, and crafts from a by-gone era.

The Lake View Café offers great food with a view

Take in the spectacular views while enjoying a full menu of options in our Lake View Café. Enjoy outdoor seating on our newly-built café deck overlooking beautiful Blue Mountain Lake.

Due to a staff shortage our Café hours for the remainder of the season will be 11am – 2pm each day, offering a limited menu. We thank you for your understanding. 

A family enjoys a laugh and the view from the outdoor patio at the Lake View Café.
