3 Historic Attractions To Visit in Albany

@MikeRyanRadio | 3.28.23

Albany is a city steeped in history and culture. From its early beginnings as a Dutch settlement to its pivotal role in the American Revolution, the city has a lot to offer for visitors looking to explore its heritage. This list could have been 10+ but I condensed it down to the three elite sites to visit in the Albany area:

New York State Capitol – The New York State Capitol is a stunning example of late 19th-century architecture. Visitors can take a guided tour of the building, which includes highlights such as the Senate and Assembly chambers, the Million Dollar Staircase, and the Governor’s Reception Room.

The Albany Institute of History and Art – The Albany Institute of History and Art is a museum dedicated to preserving and promoting the history and culture of Albany and the greater Hudson Valley region. Visitors can view exhibits ranging from the city’s early Dutch settlement to contemporary art, as well as participate in educational programs and events.

USS Slater – The USS Slater is a restored World War II destroyer escort that is now a floating museum. Visitors can explore the ship’s decks and learn about its role in the Atlantic Theater during the war, as well as the experiences of the sailors who served aboard it. The USS Slater is the only one of its kind still afloat in the US.
