Historic Museums in the Hudson Valley

Our history museums have unique stories to tell, from the daily life on a 1732 Dutch Colonial homestead, to the history of WWI and barnstorming era airplanes. Go straight to the scene by taking an historic tour at a Little Red School House, a 1914 railroad station, or the FDR Presidential Library.
