Plan Your Visit

We Can’t Wait to See You!

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.

Open 7 days a week from 10am – 4pm
Timed ticket purchases for all visitors and members are recommended.

We encourage you to review our COVID Courtesy Code and KNOW BEFORE YOU GO FAQs before reserving tickets.

Free Parking

There is an abundance of free parking at ADKX.  A convenient electric charging station is available, first come, first served.

How Long to Stay

Our campus offers more than 20 buildings and structures spanning approximately 121 acres. Visitors can often spend a few hours at a single exhibit, while others may explore at a more rapid pace. We recommend a visit of at least 4 hours to experience the ADKX.

What to Bring

Visitors who plan on enjoying our outdoor activities are encouraged to bring water bottles, sunscreen, snacks, etc. (Please note all food and beverages should be stored or left outside when entering exhibits.)

Where to Eat

Eat right here on the premises at the Lake View Cafe’ and take in the beautiful views of 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.
