Explore  Spirit of the City: Imagining the Pan-American Exposition
Spirit of the City, the History Museum's 3000 square foot feature exhibit showcasing the Pan-art1.jpgAmerican Exposition, and our collection's storage areas populate the Resource Center. In the 1990s, The Buffalo History Museum acquired and renovated the streetcar repair barn (circa 1895). 
The materials housed in the Pan-Am Building during the Centennial, transforms this 100+ year old trolley barn into a Pan-Am Exposition hall. The combined exhibit features “the Little Building,” a rediscovered structure from the Pan-Am grounds, plus artifacts and hands-on displays that explore the exposition’s funny and serious sides.
