New York State Museum

The New York State Museum launched a new website last month that has improved functionality, more photos, and better organization.

The Exhibitions section now lists current, upcoming, ongoing, online and past exhibitions. The Programs section features a comprehensive listing of all public programs (both on and off-site) and allows visitors to use "filters" to see programs that are of interest to them. The Research & Collections section now features more information about collections and research in archaeology, biology, geology, history, Native American ethnography, and paleontology.
