The Albright-Knox is situated at the edge of Buffalo’s Delaware Park, designed by America’s foremost landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. Its main buildings—one neoclassical and one modern—were designed by celebrated American architects Edward B. Green, of Green & Wicks, and Gordon Bunshaft, of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.
A third building, Clifton Hall, houses staff offices. The museum’s main entrance is located on Elmwood Avenue, directly across from the Burchfield Penney Art Center at Buffalo State, and its east side overlooks Hoyt Lake. Our campus features a number of outdoor sculptures that we invite you to explore at any time.
On November 4, 2019, the Albright-Knox will temporarily close its Elmwood Avenue campus to begin the construction phase of its AK360 Campus Development and Expansion Project. As part of the project, the museum will construct a signature new building on the north side of its campus and renovate its current facilities.
