  • We had a great time visiting exhibits of Adirondack canoes, sailing and power vessels of yesteryear, listening to a philosophical history of the Iroquois nation and Mohawk peoples given by Joshua Sergeant, enjoying the scenic vista of Blue Lake from the mountainside cafe, ambling about the site's 32 acres. If your into history and learning this is a wonderful place for both adults and children to bond. It's a bounty for all the senses. There's an interactive 4D canoeing exhibit in which the sense of motion through the lake waters is quite real. The log jam clearing exhibit also utilized an interactive branch used by loggers. There are many more activities for children and adults alike, all in beautifully kept grounds. So different from Disney or Universal, but a total pleasure to experience which is surrounded, unlike other theme parks, not in fake rocks and trees; but rather, by the lush verdant of the Adirondack forest itself. Get your dose of "vitamin N" . Well worth the visit if you're in the area.
  • Great place to step back in time. Intricate details are on display of the logging business and the men who towed the line. Beautifully portrayed dioramas. An excellent place to bring children and older adults.
  • I was here for 3 months on the build doing interior. I have been many places but this experience will live in my memories forever! To all the crew at the museum and the people of the Adirondacks, you are truly the Best community I have had the honor to love amongst. Thank you for everything and I will be back! Rodney Ivey.....
  • Very informative museum about the Adirondack area. Exhibits to keep kids interested. Parking is easy. There's a well dressed food cafe in the back overlooking the lake. It's a beautiful place to visit.
  • I only visited the main building but it was very clean and the museum information there was pretty neat. The gift shop was very nice with a variety of items for sale.
