Buffalo Bill Museum Expansion “It's an exciting time in the museum's almost 57 year history,” said Robert Schiffke, Executive Director of the Buffalo Bill Museum & River Pilots' Pier, “as we start another expansion of our facility.”  The women who were members of the LeClaire Women's Club, who founded the museum in 1957, wouldn't recognize the building today, but they would see many of the items first exhibited in its original location at 114 North Cody Road, LeClaire. Included will be an Archival Workroom allowing careful access to the museum's extensive print and photograph collection, a ”hands on” classroom for children visiting the museum, and exhibits that highlight LeClaire's role in the region's economic growth through its shipyards, button factories, and river pilots who opened the region to river commerce.  An architectural drawing of the expansion is available for public view at the museum during regular hours, and donations towards the expansion are being accepted. “We appreciate the support of the community in this project, and donations of artifacts and funds are always welcome.  We are truly a community institution, and volunteers have grown the museum into the LeClaire landmark that it is today” said Connie Curlott, President of the Board of Directors.  The museum is open 9am – 4pm, Mon.-Saturday; 12noon – 4pm, Sundays.
