Adirondack Museum [NY]

In 1948, the Adirondack Historical Society was founded by two men who lived and vacationed in Blue Mountain Lake, located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. Five years later, they purchased the Blue Mountain House, which would play host to the Adirondack Museum. Now, the Adirondack Museum is "renowned for the breadth of its collections that include historic artifacts, photographs, archival materials, and fine art documenting the Adirondack region's past," and features 22 exhibit spaces and galleries. In addition, the museum features a research library, publications program, and an educational department that puts on a variety of special events.

The site offers library access, visitor information, information about all of the exhibits currently on display, one online exhibit, and an events calendar.
