Thanks so much for this information! We are keeping my ten year old brother this weekend and were looking for something to entertain both him and our 2 year old DD. I think if it rains we will be at the Schenectady museum for sure!

I try to post the weekend events every week just to keep everyone active. Also if you are interested in an event and want some mom company feel free to post and see if anyone else is interested and if there is an event which I may have passed over or missed please post to let us know.
