After Hours

Join us for Buffalo’s most creative happy hour! After Hours is a program designed to take you behind the scenes at the Buffalo AKG with innovative, informative, and sometimes unexpected ways to connect with the museum and fellow art lovers. Get closer to the collection and newly revitalized campus, and enjoy complimentary wine and beer, light snacks, and conversation.

If you have questions about the event, or if you are an employee of a Corporate Supporter of the Buffalo AKG and would like to reserve tickets, please contact the membership office at or +1 716 270 8247.
