If you are interested in the early colonial history of NYS, you will enjoy this museum. Come during nice weather and you can go to the little park on the river, which is across the street.They also host some fun outdoor events. The museum staff came to my Kindergarten classroom recently to teach about colonial life in New Netherlands and the presentation was excellent- the students liked it very much.

The museum itself is small but the people are very informative and present the history of the area an entertaining way. If you can visit durring Crailo day which is Oct. they have a bunch of children and family friendly activities. Very enjoyable.

Lovely atmosphere. Informative staff. A little colonial secret surrounded by busy intersections and a nice historic respite.

We stopped over here on NYS Heritage Weekend as well as the Schuyler Mansion. It was well worth it as the staff are super knowledgeable about Dutch Colonial history in the Upper Hudson/Albany/Rensselaer area. The museum itself (restored Brick Manor House c.1712) was nicely laid out but it would have been nicer if they had some additional period rooms other than basement area. Museum gift shop had some wonderful literature on Dutch Colonial period in general and specific to Albany/Beverwyck.
