Historic Saranac Lake has announced a monthly free admission day for residents of the Saranac Lake School District. On the last Saturday of every month, through September, the Saranac Laboratory Museum will be free of charge for all local residents. Admission to the Museum is normally $5 for adults, and children are always free of charge. Admission is also free for Members of Historic Saranac Lake.
For those who are unable to attend one of the free Saturdays, there is a pass for the Museum now available at the Saranac Lake Free Library. Library card holders can check out the pass and receive $1 admission for adults.
The Saranac Laboratory Museum is open year-round, Tuesday-Friday from 10-4, and Memorial Day through Columbus Day, Tuesday-Saturday from 10-4. Visitors can learn about Saranac Lake’s unique history as a tuberculosis treatment destination, and view “Medical Marvels: Science or Quackery?,” a special exhibit open through October.
