The nation`s largest and oldest state museum, the NYS Museum hosts innovative exhibitions and programs that serve more than 750,000 visitors annually. The past comes to life as the Museum`s permanent exhibitions combine the expertise of curators, historians, archaeologists, geologists, biologists, designers, artists, paleontologists, ethnologists and other professionals to produce outstanding life-size dioramas such as the full-sized Iroquois longhouse. Many of the Museum`s exhibitions can be found online at
