Mission Statement

About the Museum The Buffalo History Museum has been Western New York's premier historical organization since 1862. We are the keepers of the authentic stories that make our community unique. Our collections, exhibits, and programs tell the stories of the people, events, and movements that demonstrate Western New York's essential place in shaping American history.



Over 250 volunteers give 9,000 hours of service each year. Their contributions are invaluable to the operation of the institution. Volunteers assist with nearly every aspect of museum operations from helping with fundraising events, giving museum tours, and cataloging artifacts.


These volunteers assist in a wide range of activities from guiding tours, managing youth activity tables, to assisting with programming or outreach in the community.


Event volunteers support the Museum’s programs and fundraisers by greeting guests, assisting admissions with registration, and bartending.
