Farley hired to direct Museum of Disability History

(Continued)

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.

The Museum of disABILITY History, at 3826 Main St., Buffalo, near the UB South Campus, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday

On Aug. 10, it will host “Ivan the Invacarnival,” a kids’ day event centered around the Ivan the Invacar book series about children with disabilities and how they gain independence with adaptive equipment. For more information, visit www.museumofdisability.org, or call 629-3626.
