New York State Museum and Empire Plaza in Albany

We spent an entire day here and didn’t stay nearly long enough! What an absolute blast! And it’s all free admission! The New York State Museum showcases everything New York, from the Iroquois to fossils to 9/11 to the Jazz Age. A great place to visit!

First Church in Albany

First Church in Albany

This church, originally called the Dutch Reformed Church and established in 1642, is the second-oldest church in New York State, and has the oldest pulpit in the U.S. Visiting this church was a mission of admiration, and not just history.
