Russert exhibit ready to open at Buffalo History Museum

Oct 16, 2014

A grand opening for an exhibit that honors the memory of Tim Russert opens to the public Friday. The Buffalo History Museum will hold a sneak preview for the media tonight. WBFO's Eileen Buckley got a private tour of the exhibit.

Tim Russert was the longtime host of 'Meet the Press.'  Earlier this year it was announced that "Inside Tim Russert's Office: If It's Sunday, It's Meet the Press," a display that was on exhibit at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. would come to Russert's home town. It was through the efforts of his family and Rep. Brian Higgins.

At the Buffalo History Museum, WBFO News spoke with Walter Mayer, director of Museum Collections, who gave us a tour.
