The Goldome Bank is one of Buffalo’s most recognizable landmarks, with its gold-leafed dome glistening in the sun. Built in 1901 as Buffalo Savings Bank, today the building is a branch of M&T Bank. From the Steps to Success at the entrance to the top of the golden finial on the dome, this building was designed to convey an impression of prosperity and stability. Join us for an interior tour of this iconic downtown building, and discover the incredible architectural detail found throughout the interior.

This tour meets inside the Goldome Bank, now M&T Fountain Plaza Branch, at One Fountain Plaza, Buffalo, NY 14203. Meet by the antique banks next to the Main Street entrance. Street parking is available on nearby streets, and the Metro Rail Fountain Plaza station is directly outside the building.
