A wheelchair is available for use free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please Note: The Museum's Portico is currently undergoing some construction and will be inaccessible through August. Making history can be a messy process and we appreciate your patience! We invite you to take your prom and wedding photos in the beautiful surrounding Japanese Garden!

The Buffalo History Museum’s annual operations are supported, in part, by public funds from the County of Erie and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the generosity of our Members.

M&T THIRD FRIDAYS are made possible by a generous grant from M&T Bank.
