My family and I were fishing at Clarence park when we stumbled across the museum. It has a great collection with very friendly staff. Admission is free. A great place for history buffs and eveyone in between!

This is a must stop if you're interested in one of the oldest towns in the WNY area. The museum is filled with artifacts, many of which have been donated by residents, and gives visitors a wonderful opportunity to view the history of this area.
