ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A museum dedicated to Irish-American history and culture in the United States is set to open its new home in downtown Albany.
The Irish American Heritage Museum had been located for its first 25 years in the Greene County village of East Durham.
Museum officials began planning the move to the capital three years ago in an effort to boost attendance. The museum had been open during the summers only, but will operate year-round at its new location.
The museum hopes to attract more school groups and other visitors.
The museum will be open Wednesdays through Fridays and on weekends.
