VISIT The Newcomb Historical Museum

Whether you are Adirondack born, a first-time visitor, or one of the many people in between, the Newcomb Historical Museum is here for your use. Based on its two-fold purpose of “Exploring the Past; Enriching the Present,” NHM serves current Newcomb and regional residents, those living throughout the U.S. and other countries with ancestral roots in the aream as well as visitors who travel here for spectacular views and unique outdoor adventures.

Unlike some museums, we remain open year round. An important element of our Adirondack history has been an appreciation of four seasons and staying active in each of them. Our staff members are willing to answer your questions or assist completion of your projects.


Our exhibit season runs Memorial Day weekend to mid-October, hours M-F and Sat. 10-5. Winter: November to April 30th, Hours M-Th. 10-3. The Bissell Reading Room is available year-round for research, reading and public use of Feel free to call or e-mail us, but we encourage your visit whenever that is possible.
