The 1791 museum, the state's oldest, has annual rotating exhibits and an impressive permanent collection that includes Hudson River School paintings and an Egyptian mummy exhibit. Silver, furniture, and contemporary-art collections cover regional history dating from the 1500s. The building, which combines a modern expansion with the original 18th-century space, is interesting architecturally.

A fine small museum with a permanent collection that doesn't have a lot of items but is deep in quality. Fine selection of Hudson River School paintings and sculpture by regional artists from the 1800s, plus a small Egyptian exhibit, as well as some other paintings and decorative art items. A bit expensive given its size, but worth seeing.
