Adirondack Museum

Tupper Lake:

Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks
866-765-7800 Tupper Lake
The Wall Street Journal called it 'glorious' and the New York Times said it was 'stunning' . This new kind of museum, spread over 31 acres, is an Adirondack 'must see' according to USA Today. Designed by the firm that created Washington DC's Air and Space Museum, the Center features live exhibits, including splashing river otters, a wide screen theater and tons of hands on exhibits.

The Wild Center is a brand new museum where the wild world of the Adirondacks opens before your eyes. Take a tour, dive into our living exhibits, and find out how you can join for the coming year. Now you can be among the first to enjoy this engaging new center of an amazing world.

The indoor Hall of the Adirondacks houses the Living River Trail and its live exhibits, including the otters at Otter Falls. The trail takes you on a journey from the marsh, past a deep lake, past a bog and forests up a river filled with trout to the summit of an alpine peak where you can touch a cloud. Along the way there’s a wealth of information about the nature of the wild Adirondacks.

You can sit down in the Find Out Forest, filled with high definition media screens where you choose where to go and what to watch. You can journey up to the top of the mountains with a cloud catcher or track an immigrant moose or raft down the Hudson Gorges. There’s a world of ideas here that you can explore in the company of engaging scientists.

Travel from the hall of the Adirondacks into the Big Wolf Great Hall to see the Glacial Ice Wall and its moving story of the formation of the modern Adirondacks. Here you can see daily Animal Encounters and meet owls and other members of the Wild Center’s living collection.

You can also relax in the Naturalists Cabinet with its collections and bird viewing area.
