Created in coordination with Erie County’s bicentennial celebration, Continuum: A History of Erie County in New York State offers a glimpse into the region’s history; a history dating back thousands of years. Inside, guests will discover the people, events, and innovations that helped build our county and view one-of-a-kind artifacts that illuminate its past. Among the many objects on display are Evelyn Rumsey Cary’s Spirit of Niagara painting,  a rare Lewis lighthouse lens from early Buffalo, and the Iver-Johnson revolver used to shoot President McKinley in 1901. Continuum: A History of Erie County also features nine cutting edge augmented reality experiences.

The Museum is open with pay what you wish admission, Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays 12 to 5 p.m. with advance admission available through EVENTBRITE.
