Learn more about the history, culture and natural heritage of New York at the New York State Museum in Albany. Visitors to this facility can enjoy 12 new exhibits each year, some drawn in part from the museum's own collection and others part of visiting collections featuring cultural artifacts, photographs and various items related to ongoing exhibit themes. Explore the main halls for a closer look at the permanent exhibits which journey from ancient New York to the secrets of early Albany via the Ariondack Wilderness, Harlem, Coney Island and the museum's floating extension, the Day Peckinpaugh, a canal motorship. Check the calendar for special children's programs, star-gazing sessions in the Huxley Theater and a range of lecture topics.
