The Museum (Non-Profit 501 (c) (3), features the extensive collection of James & Mary Ann Sandoro focusing on Buffalo’s transportation history highlighting Pierce-Arrow, Thomas Flyer, electric vehicles and automotive memorabilia, photos, paintings, art objects, vintage clothing, and an array of automotive artifacts gathered over more than 50 years of collecting.
“An ornament to the Pavement.” The Museum expanded with an atrium that houses the Frank Lloyd Wright Filling Station designed for Buffalo in 1927 but never built. The unique station has a second-story observation room with a fireplace, restrooms, attendant’s quarters with fireplace, an extensive copper roof, two 45-foot poles that Wright called “totems,” and overhead gas distribution.
