Summary

After learning about the early history and settlement of Albany in previous lessons, students leave the classroom to deepen their exploration. At the Visitors' Center, students learn about life in 17th and 18th century Albany through a three part interactive program. Aboard the Albany Aqua Duck, an amphibious vehicle, students tour the City of Albany and the Hudson River. More Overview
