Pretty accessible walk out into the tree top walkways. Amazing views. Nature center inside was pretty good- real fish and creatures, movies, gift store.

This is a neat museum, particularly if you don't know a lot about the natural history of the Adirondacks. Nice interactive displays, the otters are fun to watch. I expected more from the treetop walkway, but it was a decent end to the visit.
