Adirondack Experience Readies for Change of Season

The season is coming to a close for the Adirondack Experience, the museum on Blue Mountain Lake, but isn’t not the end of the activities. Each fall the museum gets ready for winter and provides opportunities for people to bring home a special Adirondack gift from their unique shop.

According to ADKX Director of Marketing Ausra Angermann, the museum has two planned weekends set for people to do their holiday shopping and visit beautiful Blue Mountain Lake. On November 23-24 and December 14-16 from 10 am to 4 pm, the museum provides a special shopping experience to all visitors.

“October 14 is the close of our season,” says Angermann. “We will reopen on May 24 in the spring. Between that time we have our shop open during Thanksgiving and right before Christmas, but people can always go to our online store throughout the year. At Christmas we have a special tree lighting and decorate inside the visitors center.”

While the museum will spend most of the winter rejuvenating its exhibits, there is always access to online exhibits, the Research Library, and Collections database. Currently being offered in an online experience is the exhibit Common Threads: 150 years of Adirondack Quilts and Adirondack Rustic: Nature’s Art.

After the New Year, ADKX will start their annual Cabin Fever Sundays, which take place on Sundays at 1:30 pm through the month of April. Each program offers insight into Adirondack history and refreshments are served.
