American Museum of Cutlery

This museum showcases premier examples of knives, swords, edged tools, and weapons.

It is located in the historic village of Cattaraugus, which made its mark in 1849 as the nation's first railroad boom town. Along with the rapid growth came an urgent need for implements capable of clearing land, making homes, getting food, and protecting oneself from harm. This led to another boom in the area--cutlery companies, of which there were nearly one hundred by the early 1900s.

This rich history makes Cattaraugus the perfect location for this museum!

The museum is open Thursday - Sunday 1:00 PM to 4:00PM.
