The Buffalo History Museum announces a new, free celebration for families this summer and updates to its regular lineup of fun.
First up is the Family Summer Solstice Celebration on Friday, June 21, 2019. The Museum will host family-friendly activities including a bounce house, lawn games, food truck fare, and more. General admission is free courtesy of M&T Bank and the M&T Third Fridays program.
Starting July and continuing throughout August, Hands-On History will be held every Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Museum. This new program invites guests to experience Buffalo’s history in a new way, offering specific tours in the Museum’s spaces and a related activity. Hands-On History is included in general admission and is free for museum members.
With construction underway to restore the park side entryway under the Museum’s portico, the Museum will not be hosting its traditional lineup of Parties on the Portico from June through September. Instead, the community is invited to celebrate the progress made to date and the transformation yet to come at Party for the Portico on M&T Third Friday, August 16, 2019. This 21+ event will feature live music, mini-tours of the construction progress, free snacks, a cash bar, and more. Ticketing information will be announced in the coming weeks.
