My husband did surveying back in the day so the part of the museum set aside for that interested him. My daughter and I had a nice walk down by the river back to the visitor's center while he looked at the surveying exhibits.
Great places to spend the day. Fun for one and fun for all. Kids of all ages would enjoy visiting the train depot and its vintage trains. Only walking distance from the RiverAquarium in beautiful downtown Albany.
