Updates To New York State Museum

Jul 2, 2015

The New York State Museum's exhibition galleries will soon be getting a facelift. The master plan calls for 35,000 square feet of new exhibitions, a changeable wall system and new interactive technology and media.

The renovated galleries will tell the stories of New York State's history in ways they have never been told before. The Museum's new exhibition galleries will tell that story using their world-class collections and the extraordinary collections of museums across the state.

New exhibitions will link to existing exhibitions, such as the World Trade Center exhibition, the Cohoes Mastodon and Native Peoples of New York Hall.

New York State Museum Director Mark Schaming joins us this morning to give us the details.
