Winter hours are limited. Please check our web site pierce-arrow.com. 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.

Visited with friends and we were all pleasantly surprised. Much more to the displays than just cars. Never knew they were made in Buffalo. Frank Lloyd Wright service station built inside the museum is very interesting.

Very cool auto museum in a lonely part of town. Some great rare cars and motorcycles inside the museum. Wife lived the fashion segments that they had with the cars. Worth going out of your way to see.

I believe that they have a limited number of items on sale but don't recall a formal "gift shop".
