Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Given the museum’s limited budget, Farley’s challenge is to find “innovative” ways to meet those goals. He’s already plotting development of interactive, hands-on exhibits and a virtual reality sensory experience for visitors.
The museum “is a small place with lots of potential and a story worth telling,” Farley said. Of his new job, he added, “I love it. It’s everything I hoped it would be.”
Farley will remain a member of the Erie Canal Task Force, which he currently chairs and the Western New York Tourism Task Force, he said. He’ll be appointed a member of the History Center’s board of directors later this year.
