Head Of Adirondack Museum Discusses Name Change And New Exhibits

Apr 26, 2017

This will be the 60th year that a museum in Blue Mountain Lake opens its doors to showcase Adirondack history.  Now, as it begins its sixth decade, the Adirondack Museum is being rebranded with a new name, logo and a new 19,000-square foot interactive exhibition.  Executive Director David Kahn explains why the museum’s new name is the “Adirondack Experience, The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake.”

"We’re rebranding basically to better reflect what we have to offer and to attract new audiences. This is our 60th anniversary this year and we’re introducing a 19,000-square foot interactive exhibit in celebration of that important anniversary. And all sorts of things are just coming together at the same time – the new exhibits, the change of name, more outdoor offerings for visitors. So the rebranding made sense to do at this moment."  

The museum’s campus has 65,000 square feet of exhibits.
