Welcome to the Steel Plant Museum of Western New York, a small but dynamic museum interpreting Buffalo and WNY’s steelmaking history. We feature 2 rotating exhibits a year, a First Wednesday Speaker Series, and our annual “Steelfest”!

Steelfest Volunteers

Please join us for the opening of our new exhibit, “Steel on Fire”.  The exhibit will discuss the recent fire at the Bethlehem Steel plant site in Lackawanna. The opening event will take place from 6 to 9pm on Friday, May 12, 2017 at the museum. This event is FREE and open to the public!

We are always interested in receiving new artifacts and oral histories from women who worked at the steel plants! If you have anything you want to donate for the exhibit, please contact our curator.
