HOK Museum of the Adirondacks to open soon
A new natural history museum of the Adirondacks, known as The Wild Center, has been completed by international architectural firm HOK. The main scheme of this 31-acre new museum is to bring the surrounding outdoors indoors, and to provide an unprecedented experience of the natural setting of the Adirondack Park in which it resides.
It features a main round exhibit space called the Great Hall, which contains exhibitions such as "Living River", a life exhibit of amphibian and aquatic creatures, and a moving Ice Wall exhibit.
The route to explore the museum alternates between the indoor and outdoor environment and leads visitors to various interactive displays.
Opening is due on July 4th.
