Visitors should definitely come inside to look around the public area on the main floor of the building. The guards were surprisingly friendly and helpful, and there is a small free public museum.
1890's beauty. Though I see it everyday and am quite accustomed to it out of town guests invariably give it an "oh wow" when seeing it for the first time.
This historic building has been restored and the visitor center is still getting organized. If you are observant, however, there's lots to see.
This building is an architectural masterpiece. The outside is a stunning terra cotta profusion of natural and geometric decoration. Look above the cornice to see the trees in each corner! Every element, from balustrades to handrails to elevators are works of art. The first floor skylight is absolutely beautiful!! Take a tour to visit this treasure- it is worth it!

It's a monument to the spirit of this remarkable city, and an inspiration to the creative spirit. Structures of this type are... 更多
This is another amazing fete of architecture in downtown Buffalo. The carvings on the outside of the building are amazing as well as the original outside lighting. We were only able to tour the ornate lobby with beautiful tilework and the gorgeous elevator bank. We were there at a time when guided tours were not available.
The Guaranty is one of Chicago architect Louis Sullivan's greatest works. It features over-the-top organic ornamentation and an elaborate lobby. It is the epitome of the Chicago School highrise and well worth a few minutes to see it if in downtown Buffalo. The law offices are closed to the public but the lobby is open and the guards are friendly... 更多
