New Wednesday Hours

Wednesday August 3 marks the first day that the Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society will open its doors for evening hours. New hours for the musuem are 12 noon to 8 p.m. Regular museum admission applies.

Look for special programming, like next week's Music at the Museum with Autistic Services (Weds. Aug. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m.). Aside from tours and vintage cartoons screened with live accompaniment on our 1911 pipe organ, there'll also be a sing-along and hands-on instrument craft-making.

Food Truck Here for Thursday Lunch

Starting Thursday, August 4, the public may come and enjoy a Picnic on the Portico--we've invited the array of locally owned food and beverage trucks (like the Roaming Buffalo, Rolling Joe's Cafe, Lloyd's Taco Truck, etc) to come and make us their Thursday serving spot. That means that every Thursday, we'll set up tables and chairs on the portico proper, and people may feel free to tailgate, bring lawn chairs or blankets, and simply enjoy good food, gorgeous views and a historical treasure of Buffalo, our magnificent Pan American building.

Pan American Exposition Walking Tours

Speaking of the Pan American Expo, the next in our seasonal walking tours of the former grounds of the Fair takes place this Sunday, August 7. It's $10 per person, which includes a souvenir map. The tour is about an hour and a half of easy walking around the Lincoln Parkway neighborhood, where the fairgrounds were in 1901. Our knowledgeable docents are full of facts and history about the year-long event. Meet at the Historical Society, 25 Nottingham Court, at 12:30 p.m. Reservations are requested, tours limited to 20 people. Email education@bechs.org or call 873-9644 x310.
