  • Lot's of concrete here to surround the former governors private collection of art. What? paid for by taxpayer dollars? Oh well, better come and enjoy then. It's an interesting place for sure. Too bad ...  more »

  • Really nice place for a walk no time of year. We strolled around the plaza taking in the 4 Agencies, The Egg, Skating Rink, the statues and art pieces. You can go up the tower to the observation deck,...  more »

  • This is an amazing place to visit. This entire plaza look stunning: a huge water pool in the center of the plaza, a historical and modern buildings across the water, a futuristic Egg - all of those make a statement. An observation deck is a bit hidden from the public eye but the view is great nevertheless.
  • Great place and museum. There's a good exhibition on the 911 tragedy and good information on New York state. Best thing is that's it's complimentary. Great place to bring kids to learn about the state history. Beautiful architecture and easily accessible from the city. Some great view of Albany.
  • New York State Museum on one end, the State Capitol on the other, and lots of modern art on display between the two of them. Plenty of places to eat during the week. Parking may be a challenge.
  • NYS museum is fun and highly educational place. It has the added benefit of a children's zone for Science and Technology that is Interactive and loads of fun. Bring the kids and plan to stay the afternoon because there is plenty to do and see.
  • ESP is a fantastic public space with architecture, the world's largest public display of modern art, performance spaces, a wonderful gathering space with reflecting pools, the State Museum, and so much more. Take it all in them venture into the rest of downtown Albany.
