  • Beautiful, local, historical art pieces as well as an ancient Egyptian exhibit. Definitely read the map and make your way down to the first floor. The marble sculptures are exquisite and the exhibit in the back room was what I was really looking forward to seeing. Well worth a few hours of meandering.
  • I love this place! It’s big enough to keep you interested for hours but not a huge place. They rotate several of the exhibits regularly which is nice. Personally, I really enjoy learning about Albany history so those exhibits are really cool to me. Staff is always super nice. I’ll definitely be back. In fact it’s one of the places I bring people who visit me from out of town.
