The Wild Center

Named by I Love New York as the top thing to do in the Adirondacks. "The place to go" says The Boston Globe, "Stunning" proclaims The New York Times. "Linger in this glorious place," instructs The Wall Street Journal. You'll be surrounded by the true nature of the Adirondacks at this new kind of museum where the wild world opens before your eyes. Live animals surround you in the main hall where you can watch otters cavort, great fish swim above you and birds call across the exhibits. A beautifully executed facility by the same group that designed the Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C. Now featuring the exclusive wide-screen movie "A Matter of Degrees," narrated by Sigourney Weaver. The film takes you on a journey into the dramatic ice age history of the Adirondacks.
