The Buffalo Transportation Museum invites guests to experience the history of the Pierce Arrow Company, which was a famous automobile manufacturing company based in Buffalo. The company was active from 1901 to 1938 and specialized in expensive luxury cars, including the first two cars used in the White House.  Pierce Arrow also manufactured commercial trucks, fire trucks, camp trailers, motorcycles, and bicycles. The museum hosts an impressive collection of automobiles and other memorabilia.

The museum is located in downtown Buffalo (201 Seneca St. at 263 Michigan Ave. in Buffalo, NY 14203). Visit the website at www.pierce-arrow.com.
