The Adirondack Museum
About 34 years ago, we visited the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY. It was a wonderful place that combined peaceful natural settings with exhibits about life in the Adirondacks.
Here is what the website says: "The natural world is "a community to which we all belong" and nowhere is this more consciously recognized than in the Adirondack Park. The Adirondack Museum continues to bring to life the history of man's relationship to this landscape so we may make better-informed decisions about the future of this very special place."

The museum actively collects, preserves and exhibits objects that were made or used by Adirondackers. These objects are historical documents that tell how people live, work, and play on the Adirondack landscape. Most of these objects have been donated by Adirondackers who want to preserve and share their family and community history. There are now some 30,000 objects, more than 70,000 photographs, 9,511 books, and 800 pages of original manuscript materials housed and exhibited at the Adirondack Museum. The museum is still collecting and those numbers are growing.
