The natural and cultural history of the Adirondacks, New York?s famous mountain, can be found in a humble museum in Blue Mountain Lake, a quiet hamlet in Hamilton County, New York. The Adirondack Museum is located on the former site of the historic Blue Mountain House, a summer hotel built in 1876.

The museum was initially built in 1947 to protect the steam locomotive abandoned along the Marion River. After a year, the Adirondack Historical Association was formed and the Blue Mountain House was chosen as the site for the then new museum. The museum aims to collect, preserve and promote the region?s history. The collections include several things from the region such as photographs, artworks, artifacts, and other materials. Highlights of the museum include a Pullman railroad car, one-room schoolhouse, and a piece of ?Sunset Cottage?.
