The Wild Center

There’s a day’s worth of things to see and do at the 54,000-square-foot Center and on our 81-acre campus. Explore the exhibit halls, meet one of our many animals, take a woodland walk down to the Raquette River, or watch one of our high-definition films. See the planet come alive in Planet Adirondack or watch our river otters do flips at Otter Falls. The museum hosts plenty of hands-on activities and hundreds of live animals from rare native trout, to turtles, snakes, and many other often hard-to-see residents of the woods and waters. Learn more about The Wild Center.
