About Us
Called "the best of its kind in the world," by The New York Times, the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake overlooks the lake of the same name.

Six million acres of Adirondack Park surround this place and form the basis of the museum’s exhibits and programs telling the stories of how people have lived, worked, played and traveled in the Adirondack region since the early 1800s

Twenty buildings on 32 acres of grounds and gardens, house exhibits on logging, boats and boating, mining, outdoor recreation, transportation, rustic furniture…, and on-going programs and special events offer a variety of interesting activities for the whole family.

Behind the scenes in the Adirondack Museum Library one can find more publications, maps and other printed material about the Adirondacks than in any other single location; and over 65,000 historic photographs offer a rich visual resource. All museum collections are accessible to the public by appointment.

There have been some notable changes to the Blue Mountain Museum. Firstly, it is now called the Adirondack Experience. To me, the name change is silly. What they've done is really great. While I miss the old transportation exhibit, the new one really gives a great overview of the history of the Adirondacks. We took some time to go through the new ADR Experience, but could easily have taken much more. Since we visit nearly every year, we will simply spend more time in the future at each station that draws us in. The boat building is much the same. Same goes for the woods and water exhibit, and the logging exhibit. It's worth the time and expense,if you live museums, history, and the ADR.

It's a good place for a day trip. Took us about 3 hours. Nice exhibits and nice view of lake.

Another 5 star; must see attraction in the Adirondacks. if you love this park, you need to see the tools and transportation that made life possible for our pioneers of these forests and waterways. There is something for every age and I have visited several times. A lot of antiques and a large gift shop.

Great museum with plenty of buildings and artifacts on the premises to allow visitors to appreciate the Adirondack life style - present and past.
