  • Very nice museum. Even with 3 kids and 3 teenagers we all enjoyed it! The variety of paintings, maps, statues, special exposition etc made it interesting for everyone. Entrance is not too pricey...

  • Really nice museum, they had Wyeth's family BOA art collection, excellent exhibit from 1800's and 1900's. My favorite was train travel in 1920s and 1930s, some really outstanding posters and other exhibits. Hudson river school paintings, 19th century American Sculpture, ancient Egypt, and colonial Albany where all part of the experience. Definitely worth a visit.
  • I really had little idea of what awaited me inside but I'm so glad I decided to visit. Beautifully displayed artifact that include an Eygptian mummy, sculptures and currently the work of Li-Yun Wen which is as stunning as it is beautiful.
