    Had intentions to visit anyway but the rain moved in early and we came here, easily spending the afternoon inside. It's free and it's a very well done museum. Glad to visit, learn, and see the history

    Take your time. Watch the ENTIRE Firefighter Bill Green documentary in the 9/11 exhibit. It is unbelievable!! Also, take note of the Harlem exhibit :)

    Check out "Beneath the City: An Archeological Perspective" -- Under our streets, sidewalks, yards, and buildings are layers of soil that contain objects made, used, and discarded by former residents.

    Remember coming here as a kid. Such a fun museum to visit. Not as great as one in a larger city. But great for Albany

    Free. Great exhibits about all of NY. Powerful 9/11 exhibit. Only problem is galleries seem a bit disjointed and there isn't much of a flow thru the museum any longer. Makes it easy to miss things.

    This is a cool little museum, extremely informative for adults and hands on for the kids. Kids loved the animals and the 100+ yr old merry go round upstairs!
