About the Museum

Having received its Act of Incorporation in 1935; designation as a historical landmark in 1979; and designation as a historical preservation site in 1999, the Colored Musicians Club has a very rich and significant history. Located in the same building, the CMC Museum is a multimedia archive where the visitors can view and interact with artifacts that represent the long history of the club. Parts of the CMC collection can also be made be available to scholars and researchers. 


Do you have any historical memorabilia from the CMC?

We are always looking for more historical photos and memorabilia about the CMC. Because the CMC has been a part of the Buffalo community for generations, you may have some historically significant items in your attic or scrap book, or personal stories and connections that you could share with the community.

We are currently looking for:

• Memorabilia from the club (photos, audio, artifacts, musical instruments

• Your memories and stories (letters, interviews)
