Youth + Family Tours

Join us for a FREE one-hour guided walking tour, compliments of the Buffalo Architecture Foundation.

Explore Buffalo,  in partnership with the Buffalo Architecture Foundation, proudly present FREE Youth + Family Tours for citizens of Buffalo and the Greater WNY area.  Eyes on Buffalo is a series of four tours that apply our award-winning Architecture + Education concepts into our city!  Tour participants will be able to learn about significant Buffalo buildings, AND engage in interactive activities that will educate participants about the architectural concepts behind the buildings.  Each of the four tours are not dependent on one another; however, they can be done in a series to get the complete tour of Buffalo buildings and basic architectural concepts.

All tours will be at 11 AM on Saturday mornings.
