The building that houses the Buffalo History Museum is the largest reminder of the Pan-American Exposition. Executive Director Melissa Brown says "this was the only building intended to remain after the exposition was over."

This weekend, Friday through Sunday the museum is planning a celebration of the 118th Anniversary of the Pan-American Exposition. It will take place at the museum and a couple blocks away at the museum's resource center where there is a permanent display of Pan-American artifacts. There will be a free shuttle taking visitors between the two sights.

The weekend will include kids activities, tours and a piano concert at the museum on Saturday on the 1901 Grand Piano that bears the official New York State Seal. You can get much more information at the museum's website .
