Making Corruption History​​!

​​​​Located in historic downtown Albany, New York, The Museum of Political Corruption will offer tourists a fascinating, informative journey through New York State's “rich” history of political corruption. The Museum will feature interactive exhibits, offer lectures and student programming, and serve as a sounding board for visitors to express their views. Featured on NPR, New Yorker Magazine, the Huffington Post, and USA Today, The Museum of Political Corruption is destined to become one of upstate New York's premier tourist attractions.


"...a museum that would not only detail Albany's many political scandals but also offer some possible solutions to corruption."

The Museum of Political Corruption, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan institution, is committed to empowering the public by offering a better understanding of political corruption, detailing its history, and encouraging solutions that promote ethics reform and honest government.

Forget the standard tourist attractions cities regularly set aside funding for. A professor in Albany, NY has a unique idea for a local venue that could, no doubt, be replicated elsewhere: a museum of political corruption.
