  • They had a great and wide selection of artwork and history, all packed in this building. Loved seeing painting by Thomas Cole alongside mummies dating back from to the early millennia! The historical artwork and documents showcasing early Albany (and Alexander Hamilton) was a real treat as well-definitely worth a visit!
  • I adore this museum, and visit frequently to see the new exhibitions and revisit the long-standing ones. The extensive Hudson Valley School collection is wonderful, as is the unique Egyptian collection.
  • I only visited the cafe and gift shop. The cafe has a great selection of Crisan pastries and cakes.
  • A wonderful museum, rich with history and objects.
  • Great museum. They have a few hidden gems as paintings by Search Thomas Gainsborough.
