In a state as historic and vibrant as New York, it is of little
surprise that Albany continues to be a highly sought-after
destination. As the stateís capital, it is a place where
families have lived for generations, and they are quite
welcoming towards people who are new to the area. As you begin
the process of moving to your new home, you may be feeling
anxious about moving to a new area. However, this apprehension
will begin to fade as soon as you begin to take in all that this
beautiful part of the country has to offer. With a diverse
climate and many events taking place throughout the year, there
is never a shortage of things to do.
American Italian Heritage Museum
With New York being home to such a diverse culture, it makes for
the ideal place to celebrate the history that helped form this
nation. Take an afternoon to visit the American Italian Heritage
Museum. Located right in the heart of Albany, the museum
celebrates the very culture and people that have made the city
the special place it is today. With thousands of items on
display, children and adults alike can gain a better
appreciation of the rich legacy that is unique to the area.
There are various exhibits, educational programs and lectures
held throughout the year, making each visit to the museum a
unique and rewarding experience for you and your family.
Actually, this heritage museum isnít that
small, containing eight rooms of exhibits plus a cultural center
with a full roster of activities, located in a 1920s mission
church (the museumís conversion won a preservation award). In
addition to its exhibits of artifacts and artworks recording and
preserving the story of Italian immigration to, and
contributions to, the United States, the museum has a lively
events schedule that includes cooking classes.
