Lots to see at the museum that focuses on NYS local military history. Lots of interesting facts about how the NYS military played significant parts in each war and conflict.

Very large & quite impressive collection of military memorabilia, weaponry, vehicles, uniforms, artifacts. Detailed exhibits. Everything Thoroughly presented & documented. Displayed in era's (date). Housed in an old Armory building. Small gift shop. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. A hidden gem. Free admission. Terrific day trip.
