miSci (museum of innovation and science)

At miSci, all of our exhibits, programs, and events are designed with our mission in mind: to inspire people to celebrate and explore science and technology, past present, and future.

miSci is a dynamic destination just a short drive from Albany, Saratoga, and Troy which celebrates science, invention, and imagination. The Museum explores the area's rich technological heritage, with some of the region's finest interactive exhibits; a must-see for families, tourists, area residents, and other visitors. 

The Suits-Bueche Planetarium features a high-definition, full-dome, computerized projector which projects on the full 30-foot dome and provides an immersive experience, and a GOTO Star Projector, which offers a real-life view of the night sky not available anywhere else in the northeast. Our Archives include 1.6 million images from the General Electric Photograph Collection, and attracts researchers from across the county and the world. Tours are available. Our Shop offers high-quality, unusual items gifts including hard-to-find science educational toys.
