Not everyone was watching the Bills Game. Some Buffalo folks were at the last visit before the Albright-Knox closed it's doors.

The Albright-Knox closed its doors to the public at 5 p.m. on Sunday. They’ll stay closed for roughly the next two years as the museum undergoes a major overhaul. But, before the museum closed, big crowds of Western New Yorkers made their way through the facility Sunday, getting in one last visit.There was even a line at the entrance Sunday morning, a rare sight on any other weekend.
Susan Cozzi of Cheektowaga was first in line, after waiting for hours. She enjoyed Anthony McCall's "Dark Roooms: Solid Light"
She said she didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see it with the closure looming.“I’m like, ‘That’s it. I have to go. It’s the last day’ and I just wanted to make sure I got to see it before it closed,” she said.
Albright-Know is set to reopen in two years with a new name, Buffalo's AKG.
