The Cuomo admin announced today that the Executive Mansion in Albany will be open to the public on March 27 -- Easter -- this year. There will be tours, a chance to meet Andrew Cuomo, and an Easter egg hunt for kids.

Everyone 16 and older will need a ticket. If you do score a ticket, you can bring one guest and any underage children from your household. Registration for the tickets is open now through next Friday, March 18.

About the tickets: "Space is limited and tickets are non-transferable. In the event that the number of requests exceeds available space, attendees will be selected by lottery. Guests will be notified of their selection via email on Thursday, March 24th."

The Executive Mansion open house is Sunday, March 27 from 1:30-3:30 pm.
