Adk Museum Gets Support for Kid Zone Exhibit

The Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake is the recipient of a grant in the amount of $10,000 from NBT Bank, Lake Placid, N.Y. The funding will be paid in two installments and will support a new exhibit, &#8220Woods and Waters Kid Zone,&#8221 scheduled to open in May 2011.

&#8220Woods & Waters Kid Zone&#8221 will celebrate the outdoors through creative play. The exhibition will be designed to engage the museum’s youngest visitors and connect children with the history of outdoor recreation in the Adirondacks.

Immersive exhibit environments will evoke familiar North Country scenes in all seasons &#8211 a campsite, trout stream, wooded trail, snowy path, and a cozy backwoods cabin &#8211 all brought to life with the scents, sounds, and textures of the natural world.

&#8220Woods & Waters Kid Zone&#8221 will be a permanent exhibit, reflecting the museum’s dedication to presenting history in new and exciting ways. The exhibition will meet the needs of families, create imaginative play areas for children, and lay the foundation for a lifelong love of the Adirondacks.

The Adirondack Museum tells stories of the people &#8211 past and present &#8212- who have lived, worked, and played in the unique place that is the Adirondacks 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. For information about all that the museum has to offer, please call (518) 352-7311, or visit www.adirondackmuseum.org.
