The Wild Center

Olympic Byway and Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

With over 900 exhibits of live animals and 31 acres of trails, the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, also known as the Wild Center, is the best place to expand your knowledge of the natural beauty in the Adirondack Park.

The Wild Center is located on a 31-acre site in the Town of Tupper Lake, NY near the geographic center of the Adirondack Park. You can hike and explore the Museum's 31- acre campus with naturalist guides or on your own. There are theaters with high definition films, plenty of hands-on nature, and hundreds of live animals from rare native trout, to river otters, to turtles the size of walnuts and many other often hard-to-see residents of the woods and waters
