  • Good history
  • Where?! Albany. You'd never guess it once inside though, fantastic museum in a very unexpected location and full of all sorts of art from locals to world renowned artists.
  • The last thing we expected as we pulled into Albany was a fine art museum. Boy were we surprised! This is the real deal folks, as you tour the art exhibits you will completely forget you are in small town Texas, but not only are you in small town Texas, but you are in one of the finest to visit. Go! You won't regret it!
