The Adirondack Coast Cultural Alliance is set to host the 12th Annual Museum Days Weekend throughout Clinton County on June 15-16, 2019, inviting visitors and residents to explore the area’s wealth of museums, galleries and cultural organizations. From 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, participating locations will offer free admission, including demonstrations, tours, exhibits, hands-on activities, and more.
This year’s event coincides with the first of two New York State “Path Through History” Weekends in 2019. The full Museum Days Weekend schedule will be published is on the Adirondack Coast Cultural Alliance website.
The Adirondack Coast Cultural Alliance and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau have redesigned and updated the Adirondack Coast Arts & History Passport. The 2019 bilingual passport guides visitors to the 17 museums and cultural sites located throughout the Adirondack Coast. Along the way, during Museum Days and throughout the summer, visitors are encouraged to collect as many stamps as they can on their passport for a chance to win some great prizes at a drawing on November 30. The passport can be picked up at any location participating in Museum Days Weekend, as well as the North Country Chamber of Commerce.
