This was such a cool gem tucked away in the city! The woman that was there was very helpful. Their library in the back is absolutely amazing!

We were in Albany for a day and found this place. It is very quaint little exhibit and library depicting Irish American heritage. The current exhibit discussed the history of the Erie Canal. Wonderful way to spend an hour or so.
