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.

This is a very welcoming, small museum with interesting posters and displays on Irish history. It has a nice selection of gift shop items. They also offer Irish movies (with that great Irish humor) and musical events and talks. It's a worthwhile museum to check...More
