Guy Park Avenue School, also known as Walter Elwood Museum, is a historic school building located at Amsterdam, Montgomery County, New York. It was built in 1902 and is a two story, square brick building on a raised stone foundation. It features a round arched entrance portal of cast stone and a triangular pediment highlighted by an oculus and wag ornamentation. It ceased use as a school in 1968.

For several years, it housed the Walter Elwood Museum, with exhibits about local history and culture.[2] The museum has since moved to the nearby Guy Park mansion, also a historic site.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[1]
