This unique museum focuses on Buffalo's transportation history featuring Pierce Arrow, Thomas Flyer, electric vehicles, vintage bicycles, motorcycles, muscle cars and trucks, many made in Western New York. A special feature is the full scale Buffalo Filling Station by Frank Lloyd Wright, designed for Buffalo in 1927 but never built. Rights to build it were secured and the impressive structure with expansive copper roof and detailing is housed in the atrium of the museum.

For the price if you like cars and bicycles it is a location for you to check out. The staff is extremely nice and very knowledgeable in the history of Pierce-Arrow. Highly recommended!

A lot of people don't know that Buffalo was a producer of automobiles. Pierce-Arrow Museum tells about a history of these beautiful cars and has a great display of these cars.

A wonderful display of vintage cars and memorabilia of the era. The floor is covered with a great display of cars with walls of display cases displaying a variety of car collectibles and car themed items. A must see for all car buffs
