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.
Come explore the exhibit halls, create your own work of art, meet one of our many animals at an animal encounter, take a woodland snowshoe down to the Raquette River, join us for a live show, or watch one of many amazing films produced by The Wild Center. It's all covered by your single admission.
The Wild Center's movie, A Matter of Degrees, narrated by Sigourney Weaver, was a finalist at the Banff Mountain Film Festival and first prize winner at the National Association for Interpretation. Filmed exclusively for The Wild Center's wide screen, it's screened each day. Additional shows include the breathtaking images of Carl Heilman’s Wild Adirondacks.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services named The Wild Center as one of this year's 30 finalists for the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The Center was named one of 15 museum finalists. The medal is the nation's highest honor for museums, recognizing institutions for their extraordinary public service and remarkable contributions to their communities.
We have an entire hall dedicated to this giant globe experience where you can see the whole planet, and tons of stories that you can only really see from a space-age view.
Throughout the year there are eXpeditions, snowshoe hikes, guided birding walks, BYOB (boat!) trips, talks and more. Find out more.
