Buffalo History Museum to begins second phase of $2 million restoration project


The Buffalo History Museum will begin the next phase of restoration to the lower level of its National Historic Landmark Building.

Work focuses 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-sq.-ft. 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.

During this phase of restoration, the museum will close its primary location, at 1 Museum Court, from Feb. 21 to March 30.
