Buffalo History.
sie 2019
Part of the history of Buffalo. Building was closed in 1978 so could only view fro the outside. Beautiful architecture, Art Deco, Beaux-Art.. worth a visit if you’re interested in Buffalo history and iconic buildings.

No Way to Treat Paying Customers

I visited the Terminal twice this summer- the first time for a car show, with the interior open for free admission. There were notices saying that cameras were not permitted, phone cameras only. I came back with three other people for the paid Historical tour, which allowed cameras.
The docent (a very self-important guy) harassed anyone who disengaged from his (very long) oration to gaze at the structure or to take photographs. The Docent also was very sharp with a young boy who wasn't moving fast enough, although the young lad was in no way holding anything up. Very poor people skills.
Far too long a presentation, and far too little allowance for people to just wander and soak up the building. Virtual contempt for photographers, who need a little space and concentration to do their thing.
The Terminal is a gorgeous building and I very much support the efforts to preserve it. But the tour did not allow me or the three people I was with to properly enjoy it. It was a very disappointing experience for all four of us.

A 2.5 Hour tour that should be half that long
sie 2019
I was so very excited for this tour and was sorely disappointed. The building is VERY cool and it is enjoyable to hear all about the history. That said, the tour is unnecessarily long for how much you actually get to see. The tour started with a full 45 minutes standing outside in the sun while they talked about the building, of which most of it could have easily been talked about inside. This was followed by another 45 minutes back in the main terminal area (the main meeting room you started in before they took you outside to talk about the parking lot and building exterior), then 20 more minutes in a underground room talking about mob bosses and then back up to the main room again. At the two hour mark it became very apparent that there was no point where it was going to get more interesting and my feet hurt from standing around for so long and we ended up leaving. I was just bored out of my skull.

I think it's great that they're doing all this hard work to try to save this enormous structure, and the volunteers are very dedicated. But this tour is serious need of an editor - cut a full hour off the tour and it'd be FAR more enjoyable.

Went for a guided tour. It is beautiful - just as beautiful as Grand Central Station in NYC. Enthusiastic volunteers and guides. Must see it!

Walking into history
lip 2019 • Znajomi
I have passed this site many times and often wondered what it would be like. As I learned more about its history, I realized that this was a major transportation facility in the U.S. in its time. The size and scale of the building is immense. So when I learned I could go inside for the Eastside Festival, the opportunity was irresistible. The Festival was great - live music, lots of people. The building, while in severe disrepair, if a classic. I hope Buffalo and Erie County can find ways to make this building vibrant again. If you are able to visit, do so.

The East Side Festival which showcased the Buffalo Central Terminal was so enjoyable, well planned out and organized parking and plenty of volunteers on hand . The entertainment was excellent and crowds appreciative of this incredible gift.

The only piece to improve would be the main food concession stand. While they were pleasant and as fast as possible, having only one line to order made the wait far too long. Perhaps pre- prepared items and cold food can be ordered in one separate line and then have two areas at opposite ends of the venue to order all other food.

All in all, it was wonderful! I can’t wait to see what progress will be made in the near future.

Great Tour Guide! Just couldn't hear him!!
cze 2019 • Znajomi
We toured the Central Terminal with about 100 other people. There were so many people we could not hear the speaker. They broke us up into groups but there was still about 50 people in our group. The tour guides really need some form of microphone so everyone can hear them. They kept telling us to move forward but you can only get so close to a strange without touching them. All the guide was very knowledgeable. We just wish we could have heard better.

BUFFALO PLEASE WAKE UP AND RE-USE THIS BUILDING !!!
maj 2019
How sad that local consensus seems to dictate "economic feasibility" rather than STRIVING TO UTILIZE THE ELEGANT HISTORY AND ARCHITECTURE OF OUR FAIR CITY. Fair is unfortunately what we are stuck with, and although a serious undertaking IMAGINE THE NATIONAL PUBLICITY of re-opening a site and (Railroad Service) of this magnitude. Like it or not, RAILROADS built this country and they should be venerated for their history and role in developing our culture. IMAGINE BUFFALO !!!

A shame it's not being used

A shame it's not being used more, I've been to several events here and the concourse is large enough for many options, too bad overpricing is driving away the people who want to rent it.

Awesome place to take a tour wish I could have seen it in its hayday!
paź 2018 • Pary
Took an hour ghost tour there. I brought a group of nineteen. We were part of a bigger tour. We had @ people giving tour and three people watching the group, I felt the group was 2 big and should have been broken up since there were enough people "watching us". Other then that it was a great tour. The history of the Terminal is just plain awesome. Hoping they can bring it back to what it should be....
