Trailside Museums and Zoo at Bear Mountain State Park
admission by donation
Looking for something scenic to do on a winter day? This little, local treasure houses four museums which include exhibits on local geology, Native American and colonial history, animal specimens cataloguing the parks' natural history, and live reptiles, amphibians and fish exhibits in the herpetology museum. Connecting these museums are winding nature trails that lead visitors by the zoo's bear den and other live animal exhibits featuring injured and orphaned local wildlife that would be unable to survive in the wild.
Address: Palisades Interstate Parkway, Exit 19 or Route 9W Bear Mountain , NY
