Tod Kniazuk, at the podium, along with Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and representatives from various cultural institutions talked about the importance of this month’s National Museum Day.

More than a dozen area museums and cultural institutions are seizing an opportunity to expose the arts to more people. At least 15 such organizations across Western New York are participating in this year’s National Museum Day.

Anyone who goes to the Smithsonian Magazine website can download a free ticket for admission for two people to the museum of their choosing. Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown says it’s a good way to draw people to culturals who might not normally go.


Culturals hope free Museum Day admission will lead to repeat visits WBFO 0915015
