Buffalo History Museum offers preview of $2 million restoration project

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo History Museum provided a sneak preview see how things are going with the $2 million restoration on the lower level of the building.

It's meant to restore architect George Cary's original vision and add new amenities such as bathrooms and a new HVAC system.

"The door on that level of the museum leads right out to Delaware Park, like right out to the cherry blossoms and the Japanese Garden," Cheyenne Ketter-Franklin of the Buffalo History Museum said. "And I think it's going to mean a lot to have that door open to the public in the summer and in the warmer months."

That's right about when museum officials expect to have this work wrapped up, in June or July.
