We were here for a working tour and the place is so incredibly awesome!!! The music that constantly plays wherever you are on the site is so nostalgic and magical - feels like a Disney experience that recreates turn of the century charm and sense...MoreThank you so much for this review. It captures the magic we hope to bring to our visitors. Happy you had a good time.

Being from Buffalo and surrounded by Frank LLoyd Wright, I take great architecture for granted. I’ve seen many FLW projects all over the US but this Darwin Martin House has everything beat, no contest. I have not been to the complex since it first started. To see everything as it is now was amazing. I loved it!!!

Shea's Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By Cyprian C

Have been here multiple times for multiple plays and this place never disappoints.

Would recommend getting seating above row E (on main floor) that way you get sight of the entire stage, and naturally stay away from the far sides (like every theatre).

Great acoustics inside and. Concessions very reasonably priced (6-8$ beer/wine) (4-6 snacks).

If you love theatre and can afford to do so, it is always great to experience the same play from multiple seating locations - always a different and amazing experience.

Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site

Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated as President of the United States in 1901 in Buffalo, NY, after the assassination of President William McKinley. Exhibits focus on the assassination and inauguration, details of Roosevelt's life and consequential issues of the day no less important to citizens more than a century later. Visitors can also tour nearby historic neighborhoods.

If you are a fan of Theodore Roosevelt you will really appreciate this museum. The Wilcox House contains a rich collection of President Roosevelt's memorabilia - including a display of his inauguration which took place in the upstairs library and also contains artifacts pertaining to the assassination of President William McInley. The mansion is very well cared for and really conveys a sense of a bygone era.
