MUSEUM TRAVEL PROGRAM Saratoga Battlefield & Philip Schuyler House

Special Programs

THIS TRIP HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Join the Albany Institute on a special bus trip to Saratoga National Historical Park.

Begin your visit with getting acquainted at the Visitor's Center, then hop back on the bus and take a drive through Saratoga Battlefield, making several stops along the way. Arrive at the Philip Schuyler House, the country home of General Philip Schuyler both before and after the Battle of Saratoga. The British burned the original house and its outbuildings during their retreat and the present house was erected in 1777 shortly after Burgoyne's surrender. The focus of our time in the Philip Schuyler House will be the stories of the enslaved people who lived and worked on the Saratoga plantation.

We'll finish the afternoon with lunch at the Olde Bryan Inn, a Saratoga tavern with a history dating back to the Revolutionary War.

  • $85 per person, includes transportation, tours, and lunch

Space is limited and reservations are required. To reserve your spot, contact Jessica at luxj@albanyinstitute.org or (518) 463-4478 ext. 465. Bus pick-up and drop-off information is provided upon reservation.
