This tour is a collaboration between Forest Lawn and Buffalo History Museum. The tour begins at Forest Lawn, where you will board the Forest Lawn trolley and visit the final resting places of many of the movers and shakers who made the Pan-American Exposition happen.

At noon, the trolley will stop at the Pan American Brewery in the newly renovated Hotel Lafayette in downtown Buffalo for lunch (included), where you will enjoy a mini tour of the restored landmark, designed by Buffalo architect Louise Bethune.

Then, it is back on the trolley to head over to the Buffalo History Museum's Resource Center on Forest Ave. to tour "The Spirit of the City" interactive exhibit, built to celebrate and highlight the many events, exhibits and curiosities of Buffalo's 1901 Pan-American Exposition. Then, it is off for a tour of the Pan-American grounds, where you will visit the actual spot where President William McKinley was assassinated. The tour ends at Forest Lawn at approximately 3:00pm.
