Did you know that many of our local libraries offer discount museum passes that may be borrowed with your library card? This summer, libraries are lending passes to The Adirondack Experience and The Wild Center.
The Adirondack Experience (formerly the Adirondack Museum) is located in Blue Mountain Lake and provides 121 sprawling acres and over two dozen buildings and exhibition spaces to explore. A visit to the Adirondack Experience is action-packed, entertaining, educational, and fun for the entire family. From feeding trout, to bird watching, to interacting with craftsmen as they ply their trades, to strolling gallery after gallery of Adirondack art, photography, furniture, tools, cabins, boats and more, the Adirondack Experience has something for everyone.
The Library Pass for the Adirondack Museum provides a 50% admission discount for up to four adults, or two adults and all children age 17 and under. Regular admission prices are $20 for adults and $12 for children.
The Adirondack Experience opens for the 2017 season on May 26 and is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. More information may be found at http://www.theadkx.org/

The Wild Center is located in Tupper Lake and consists of an 81-acre campus with forests, a winding river, a trout-filled pond, and trail walks. The Wild Walk takes visitors up a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest. It’s designed to transform the way people see into the natural world. Exhibits help visitors develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the inner workings of nature in the Adirondack region.
