• Museums

    The Lake George and Adirondack Region of Upstate New York offers a wonderful variety of museums, giving locals and tourists a chance to take a tour through history, learn its culture, and view its artistic interests via permanent and temporary exhibits, collections, and galleries – which include displayed art of all mediums, photography, artifacts, gardens, and other objects of historical importance. Museums are so vital to the communities because not only do they tell the stories of the region, by preserving, promoting, and presenting past and present history, but they allow the public to view it as well! These regional historical centers are popular attractions for the whole family since they constitute such a diverse collection – including history museums, art museums, archaeological museums, military and war museums, natural history museums, garden museums, and children’s museums.

    The following museums are in Warren County, Saratoga County, Washington County, Essex County and beyond! Click on any museum listing for more info.
