Downtown Albany

Welcome to Albany, the Capital City of New York State!  We hope you will have time to explore our beautiful 400-year-old city.  Albany's history combined with our rich Dutch architecture tell an important American story.  

Downtown Albany is home to the New York State Museum, one of the country's largest with a September 11 exhibit and a working carousel on the 4th floor.  The Albany Institute of History & Art is home to "Albany's Mummies" and was founded in 1791.  The Corning Tower Observation Deck at the Empire State Plaza is where you not only get a bird's eye view of Albany but also three mountain ranges - the Adirondacks, Berkshires, and Catskills.   

Located just a short walk from downtown Albany's business district is Lark Street, often referred to as the "Greenwich Village" of the Capital Region. With countless restaurants, cafes, art galleries, boutiques and more, Lark Street is reminiscent of the great and colorful neighborhoods of Manhattan.

The Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center offers visitors access to information seven days a week.  The knowledgeable staff can answer visitor inquiries and they are well stocked with travel brochures about New York's Capital Region.

The Visitors Center is also home to the USS Albany Exhibit, an exhibit dedicated to preserving the National Heritage of the City of Albany and to honor all those who proudly served aboard ships named after the capital city of New York State. Experience the rich history of the USS Albany ships starting in 1846 to the current day. Come walk through history and view memorabilia!
