What an enlightening experience!! Please I urge everyone to go visit this museum. The tour really provided so much information and revealed to myself on how individuals with disability have shaped o...ur evolvement as a society. What a long road these individuals have been on finally to get to the current state of knowledge. We have come such a long way as a society. See More

I learned about the Museum of disABILITY History back in 2005 or 2006 and e-mailed Curator Doug Platt to make a suggestion regarding athletes with disabilities. In 2011, a college friend invited me t...o his wedding in Rochester, and I immediately started looking into planning a trip to the museum! I contacted Doug Platt, who gave me a tour of the museum and showed me the library to do some research on accessible tourism. This museum is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in disability history or advocacy! I wish it were closer to North Carolina or located in North Carolina, but I'm glad it gives western New York a unique slice of world history! :) See More

Nice museum, has a very important place in US history to see where we have been, where we are going and HOW the disability rights mvt IS constantly changing! To make the world better for all, towards ...fully inclusion classrooms to fully accessible environments. Remember NOT all disabilities are visible. See More

The first time I visited I was somewhat afraid. I cryed a lot. But it was because I did not understand. I was confused. This museum is not just about the so-called "disabled" population. This museum worked hard to explain our history and create independent thought, which is what our "disabled" population has been wanted to tell us since the beginning of time. It continues to amaze me. It is a living history museum. Thank you museum of disability history. Thank you for being so brave. See More

You have to see the Museum if you haven't already. It's so well done and necessary! Please don't miss it if you are in Buffalo or plan on being there one day. It should be in all the guidebooks. Shock...ingly informative, and incredibly insightful. See More

My son works at this museum. He tells me about it. I guess they recently remodeled part of it to look like a replica of an asylum cell.
