One can spend a lot of time at the Buffalo History Museum. The grounds include a Japanese garden and you can fish in the lake (if you have a license). The building itself is beautiful, both inside and out. Unless you are attending one of the very enjoyable special occasions, the museum is usually quiet and serene (except, I suppose, when there is a school group). The exhibits are pretty much "view only" and cover a wide range of local history. There is, however, a model railroad setup in the basement level which, I believe, operates on the weekends. If you are interested in history and/or genealogy, the museum has an excellent research library which is open (for a fee) from 1-5pm on Wednesday to Saturday. I enjoy the gift shop as it contains almost as many interesting items as the museum! Buffalo History Museum is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 10-5, Wednesday 10-8, and Sunday 12-5. Closed on Monday. Adults pay $7, Seniors (60+) and students (13-21) pay $5, children 7-12 pay $2.40, and members and children under 7 are free. Third Fridays are free days. Parking is also free.
