While our name has changed from the Adirondack Museum to the Adirondack Experience, our mission remains the same:
ADKX preserves and interprets the diverse stories of Adirondack history, culture, and people to spark thoughtful dialogue and help shape the Adirondacks of the future.
ADKX strives to be the preeminent, trusted repository for the material culture and stories of the Adirondacks’ diverse people, past and present. It is committed to continually examining, and interpreting that collective heritage so it can maintain its relevance, and the affection of the public, in an ever-changing world.
A Museum For The 21st Century
The Adirondack Experience is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive environment that serves our visitors and our communities for the equal benefit of all.
The Adirondack Experience is situated on the aboriginal territories of the Mohawk and Abenaki communities. Indigenous people continue to live in this region and practice their teachings and lifeways. Today, the Adirondacks remain an important place for many Indigenous peoples. As a regional institution, it is our responsibility to acknowledge this historical context and build reciprocal relationships with the Indigenous nations on whose lands we are situated.
We foster the next generation of learners—from pre-school to college students.

We strive to make the campus accessible to and representative of all visitors.
The museum has long served as an economic catalyst for those who live or own businesses in the region.
