Friends and Neighbors: Adirondack Museum Offers Free Admission and Discounted Membership to Park Residents


May 17, 2011, Blue Mountain Lake, N.Y. The Adirondack Museum loves our neighbors! This year, we are introducing two new programs just for year-round Adirondack Park residents. The Adirondack Museum invites year-round residents of the Adirondack Park to visit free of charge every Sunday, and on all open days in May and October. Proof of residency such as a driver's license, passport, or voter registration card is required.

The Adirondack Museum has also introduced a new "Friends and Neighbors" Adirondack Park Resident Membership Program. Year-round Park residents can now enjoy all the museum has to offer every day of the season through a very special program that makes museum membership more affordable than ever before - half the regular price at the Individual, Companion, and Family levels! Please call the membership office for more information: (518) 352-7311 ext. 112 or email mbashaw@adkmuseum.org.

Two new exhibits will open at the Adirondack Museum on May 27: "The Adirondack World of A.F. Tait" and "Night Vision: The Wildlife Photography of Hobart V. Roberts." For more information vists us online.

The museum is open 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week, including holidays, from May 27 through October 17, 2011. There will be an early closing on August 12, and adjusted hours on August 13; the museum will close for the day on September 9. Please visit our website for details.

The Adirondack Museum, accredited by the American Association of Museums, tells stories of the people - past and present - who have lived, worked, and played in the unique place that is the Adirondack Park. History is in our nature. The museum is supported in part by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency.
