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.
