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”!

Our current exhibit is “Overshadowed”, displaying the history of lesser-known steelmaking companies in Buffalo such as Hanna Furnace, Buffalo Forge, and Republic Steel. This exhibit will be up until May 2016.
