    Adirondack Experience, Blue Mountain Lake, NY

    Since opening our doors to the public in 1957, Adirondack Experience has delighted millions of visitors with fascinating exhibits and stories about life in the Adirondack region. With over 23 historical and contemporary buildings on 121 acres overlooking Blue Mountain Lake, our open-air campus offers everyone lots to see and do. Step into the rich history of our region as you row an authentic guideboat from the new ADKX Boathouse and break up a logjam or set off a mine charge in our Life in the Adirondacks exhibit.
