Research Inquiries

Due to ongoing renovations the Research Center is temporarily unable to answer research inquiries. We hope to re-open for inquiries sometime during the summer of 2024.

Answers to many inquiries may be found in resources available on our website.  Research guides can be accessed at: 

We apologize for any inconvenience.

ATTENTION:  due to an upgrade being installed on the museum's phone system, there is no voicemail on most of our phone lines. If you would like to leave a voicemail please call the main line at 518-581-5100.  We apologize for this inconvenience.  Thank you.

Donating items to our collections

Donations form an invaluable part of our artifact and library collections. All donations are stored in a climate-controlled environment using the latest methods in preservation and conservation, so that the materials will be available for use by researchers for many years. We collect only material that is specific to the military history of New York and New Yorkers. Also, because of space limitations and redundancy, we must be selective of the items we accept for our permanent collections. If you have materials that you think would fit into our collection, please contact us.

If you would like to donate materials to our collections, please contact us at or fill in the form below.
