  • Excellent museum. Went with son's 5th grade class. Great place for kids/groups. Knowledgeable, helpful staff
  • This is a very small museum, but it's worth the visit. Since Albany had been the state capital for such a long time they have quite a few artifacts. The staff of very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions you have. The museum is two buildings that have been looked together, one older and one modern. It's worthwhile to go up or down the staircase in the older building. The busts and sculptures are best viewed from all angles.
  • Wonderful place to explore with the kids or on a date! They also have a lovely cafe inside!
  • Beautiful peices. We came on Thursday witch is their free night
  • Beautiful place with very interesting and wonderful art. Could use a bit better guide system I believe.
