Buffalo History Museum Announces Extension of Free Admittance along with Updated Guidelines

ERIE COUNTY — Free admittance to the Buffalo History Museum has been extended to the end of the January 2021, a month longer than the original deadline of the rest of 2020 highlighted by Museum Executive Director Melissa Brown over the summer before the post-Lockdown reopening.

The museum will use previously and newly set safety precautions recommended by the CDC and the NYS Department of Health, in order to accommodate visitors who, enjoy visiting the more than a century year old building for an engaging experience about local Western New York history.

The protocols include: masks being worn properly at all times by every person within the building, a new limited guest capacity of 133 people per day along with a more minimal contact check in station to emphasize social distancing, and more time devoted to cleaning surfaces within the museum that are frequently touched.

The museum will be open from 10 am to 5 pm every day with the exception of December 24-25, December 30-31, and January 1 being closed for the holidays.
