Formerly known as Amherst Museum, the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village & Museum at Amherst is an educational institution whose mission is to engage a diverse audience in the exploration of history and its influence on present-day life in the Niagara Frontier, with emphasis on the Town of Amherst. Visitors can experience 19th-century life and tour historic homes, churches and one-room schoolhouses on the 35-acre grounds with exhibits on local history, textiles, art and the Erie Canal. Special Events include Scottish Festival, Halloween trick-or-treating and a children's summer day camp.
