Although an hour's trip from Lake Placid, the nearest major resort area, the Adirondack Museum is well worth a visit. The complex is much larger than expected, with 20+ exhibit buildings of all different sizes. In addition to a great scenic location with views out over Blue Mountain Lake, there is a nice simple food service, great gift shop and lots of choices among the exhibits. Families or folks of all ages should enjoy the selection, from train cars, to dozens of boats, to Adirondack rustic furniture, to tales of life in the lumbering and mining industries of the mountains. We (four adults) expected to spend a couple of hours, but ended up staying from late morning until closing.
