Buffalo City Hall is a masterpiece of Art Deco design that is a symbol of the City of Buffalo. Completed in 1931, City Hall features ornamentation celebrating the City of Buffalo and its people, history, and values throughout both its interior and exterior. The lobby features murals by William de Leftwich Dodge, and the Common Council Chambers are highlighted by an extraordinary sunburst skylight. Join us for a free one-hour tour to discover the history and design of this remarkable building. 

City Hall tours are offered daily at noon on weekdays, except for government holidays when City Hall is closed. The tour typically includes the lobby and Common Council Chambers. Certain areas of City Hall may be unavailable on a particular day due to meetings, press conferences, or other events.

The tour meets in the lobby of City Hall by the elevators. Visitors can enter through the Niagara Square (front) or Elmwood Avenue (rear) side of the building. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to go through security so the tour can begin promptly at noon. 

All visitors to City Hall must go through security to enter the building. All persons and packages entering the building are subject to search.
