My friend and I enjoyed visiting this museum. There are two floors of exhibits. The woman working the front desk seemed to know a lot about local history and the exhibits. The price is right, too............FREE............but you will be inspired to leave a donation!

This museum is amazing. I have never seen a museum of this small size that has been so artfully curated. You could sense that there was love and respect for the Adirondacks in every exhibit, from the old logger's boots to the antique dentist's chair...More

While small, the effort that the small staff puts into planning their displays shows. There are also binders full of added info that accompanies each exhibit in each room if you have time to spare. Would be a great rainy day activity! Old Forge does...More

For a small town this museum is very professional operated. The ground floor exhibit changes about twice a year. If asked staff will explain the current exhibit to you. Free of charge, but donations are welcomed.
