The Adirondack Museum has been collecting and interpreting objects that represent the lives of Adirondack visitors and residents for more than fifty years. The Museum opened in 1957 in the heart of the Adirondack Park. Over more than five decades, it has grown to encompass 23 buildings on 32 acres. The museum’s permanent collection includes about 30,000 artifacts, 3,500 works of art, and more than 75,000 photographic prints and negatives. The historic photograph collection documents nearly 150 years of work, life, and recreation in the Adirondacks and includes works by Seneca Ray Stoddard, Edward Bierstadt, Alfred Stieglitz, Margaret Bourke-White, Eliot Porter, and many other professional and amateur photographers. The museum library collections include books, manuscripts, government documents, maps, atlases, serials, microfilms, ephemera, and audio recordings relating to the history and culture of the Adirondack Mountains and northern New York State. With about 65,000 square feet of exhibition space, the Adirondack Museum is the largest cultural organization in the North Country.
