Located in a 1792 hotel building in the historic Village of Ballston Spa, Brookside Museum has five galleries and a hands-on-history room, a research library, and a gift shop.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
As home of the Saratoga County Historical Society, Brookside Museum cares for documents, photographs, and objects related to the history of Saratoga. Our mission is to inspire community memory by telling Saratoga’s story through interactive and engaging exhibits and programs.

ABOUT OUR BUILDING
Built in 1792 as a resort hotel, Brookside has a long history of serving people. Among the oldest hotel buildings still standing in the United States, Brookside’s history is as diverse as the people who visited here. At one time a boys’ school, the builiding has also been a private residence, a boarding house, a sanitarium, and apartments. In 1970, the Saratoga County Historical Society purchased the building and opened it as a museum. Ever since, Brookside has been preserving Saratoga County’s unique history.

BROOKSIDE MUSEUM IS ON THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES.
