Travling to Albany, attractions an 11 yr old will enjoy.

Hi,

I just found this forum.

I am traveling to Albany tomorrow actually and was wondering if anyone can recommend some activities an 11 yr old might enjoy, and what about some kid friendly restaurants in the area? Someone recomended the Pump Station to me, but is it kid friendly?

And the one major question, what's the price of gas running down there? Up here in Lockport NY it's dropped to2.97 that's down from3.05 two weeks ago.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
