Virtual Tour

New York State Education Building

Carl Morrone, Supervisor of Visitor Services, New York State Museum

The New York State Education Building was completed in 1912 and was the first major governmental building constructed exclusively for educational purposes. It originally housed both the NYS Library and the NYS Museum. Designed by architect Henry Hornsbostel, it is an example of Beaux-Arts style architecture notable for its massive colonnade. Important interior features include the 94-foot-high rotunda, barrel-vaulted glass skylights, and the Guastavino tile vaulted ceilings. This tour is an opportunity to see inside one of the most magnificent buildings in Albany and will conclude with a short discussion about developing guided tours.
