Reviewed 10 July 2018 via mobile

The locally made video is fun to watch. The exhibits were nicely updated from our last visit a few years ago. We were very fortunate that our docent grew up in Lake Placid and still lives there now that he’s retired. He had wonderful stories about the town. It’s interesting being in the old train depot that is now the museum.

Our group was walking the town to see the murals and stopped in the museum. It is a very nice "small town" museum with very friendly staff. They show a short video which educated us about the area. The exhibits are well organized. It's worth a visit and complements the overall town experience.

We happened upon this by accident and it was the highlight of our visit to Lake Placid. This small museum is packed with local memorabilia, like a scrapbook of past history. The best part was our "guide", a local veteran with intimate knowledge of, and connection to, much of the history contained therein. He is a treasure.

It was such a surprise to see this museum. There are several large rooms full of amazing artifacts. It is nicely laid out and labeled with interesting facts. The volunteer working that day was a native whose grandfather grew up in the area. He told several stories about some of the early settlers. I am not a history buff but thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Beautiful displays of history right in the old train depot! It really is an excellent and eclectic collection spanning many years. A donation is not required but is suggested.
