NYS Military Museum and Open House

By   11/15/2016
Join your CDLC colleagues for special behind-the-scenes tours of the New York State Military Museum. Jim Gandy, librarian, will guide us through the archives and library. Courtney Burns, director, will lead a tour of the museum and the arms vault.

The vault is not usually accessible to the public, so we are grateful to the museum for providing this opportunity. View the exhibits and visit the gift shop.

The museum is a short walk away from downtown Saratoga Springs, so you can finish your evening with dinner at one of the many restaurants in town or get a jump on your holiday shopping.
