Museum Gala

The Museum Gala is the Albany Institute's biggest fundraiser of the year. This annual sell-out event at the Fort Orange Club features live music, dinner, and drinks.

In a typical year, the Albany Institute welcomes over 30,000 visitors. Donations at Gala help make our projects possible: rotating exhibitions, lectures, art classes, summer camp, and more. Our educational programs reach thousands of students across the Capital Region. Your support enhances the quality of life for all who live in or visit the upper Hudson Valley and Capital Region.

General Ticket information will be available soon!
