BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE — The Adirondack Museum has been awarded a $1.4 million grant through the Regional Economic Development Council and Empire State Development for an exhibition master plan.

The master plan, the first in the museum’s history, is a blueprint for updating and improving exhibitions and programs on the Adirondack story. The money will be used for the first phase of several learning experiences using the museum’s collections and galleries, including a multimedia theater, a re-created Indian hunting camp and a walk-on interactive map of the Adirondack Park.

The plan also calls for a number of other activities that will allow visitors to descend into a mine shaft, break up a log jam and have access to a water play area. Outside, there will be a trail to Minnow Pond and a boat livery with historic water vessels.

Additional features include improved handicapped accessibility, redesign of the museum’s Lake View Cafe and other structural improvements.
