The Buffalo History Museum is set to begin the next phase of restoration to the lower level of its National Historic Landmark Building.
During this phase of restoration the Museum’s primary location at 1 Museum Court in Buffalo is closed through March 30th, 2021.
Work will focus on improving guest amenities, including new restrooms and an HVAC system. At the end of this phase of construction, the Museum’s lower level will be restored to the original vision of architect George Cary, with an expansive 4,400 square foot gallery.
This phase of construction is the next element of the “Restore, Reactivate, Reconnect” capital campaign to restore one-third of the total space within the Museum. Upcoming construction work involves selective demolition, installation of a new HVAC system, electrical upgrades, restroom reconfiguration and modernization, and floor, wall, and ceiling restoration.
This phase of construction will be complete in summer 2021.
The Museum’s Resource Center at 459 Forest Ave., which houses the Spirit of the City: Reimagining the Pan-American Exposition exhibit, will be open Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm from February 25th to March 27th. Advance reservations are encouraged, and can be completed on their website.
