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.

Friendly and helpful guides, pretty cars. A good place if you are into antique automobiles. The gift shop isn't really that impressive

We were in Buffalo for a wedding and had some time on a rainy afternoon and were so surprised at this little hidden gem. We loved all of the cars, but particularly loved the Frank Lloyd Wright gas station. What a treat! Don't miss it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this spacious museum filled with antique bicycles, cars, and a Frank Lloyd Wright designed gas station (the gas hoses hung down from the overhang since the gas was designed to be stored above it). The newly acquired Corvettes were...More

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