Exhibits at the Adirondack Museum explore outdoor recreation, boats and boating, transportation, the fine arts, work and industry, tourism, and community life.


The Adirondack Museum shares the stories of the Adirondacks tales of work, play, creativity, and community through research, collections, and classes. Whether you are a scholar, a fourth grade teacher, or simply a person with a love of history we invite you to discover the breadth of our resources and learn more about the Adirondack region.

Have you ever seen a canoe you could camp in, a snow roller and whiffletree, or a bed with bark? How about a bee made of garnet, a printing press for menus, or a glass walking cane?
What do these things have in common? They're all at the Adirondack Museum, all part of the history and culture of the Adirondack region.

The number of museum exhibits and separate historic structures totals twenty-three, set on a thirty-two acre landscaped site overlooking Blue Mountain Lake.

Exhibits at the Adirondack Museum range from an entire building devoted to water transportation in the region (Boats and Boating in the Adirondacks) to Sunset Cottage, a one-room building covered entirely with split-wood decorative patterns, the epitome of Adirondack Rustic architecture.

Through these exhibits visitors learn about many aspects of the region's history, including:

Cultural history of people who lived in and visited the Adirondacks from the 1800s to the mid-1900s
Opening up the Adirondack region, from early exploration to modern recreation.
Daily lives of residents who worked the region's woods and mines, and the history of these industries
Work of artists who pictured the region's people and places in paint, pencil, on the printed page, through photography, and with other media
Landscapes, geography, natural history and political history that make the Adirondack region unique
Many other aspects of the region's social history, arts, and natural beauty that give the region its cultural and physical identity.
