Welcome to Explore & More Children’s Museum
Where fun + learning play together.
Our East Aurora location is now permanently closed.
Thank you to all of our supporters from over the years.
We can’t wait for you to experience the all-new Explore & More – The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum, opening Spring 2019!
Happy curiosity is the hallmark of childhood. It’s a belief that makes us ask a question: What can a museum be?
It can be a place where learning feels like playing—where “do not touch” becomes “try it out” —and where there’s always a reason to come back for more!
We believe in helping children explore, so we’ve built an environment for creative play and learning that’s as one-of-a-kind as every child who walks through our doors. We do everything in our playful power to give children a chance to dream, imagine, invent and do, in childhood and far beyond.
Learning often starts at home and school. It thrives here at Explore & More—a “third place” in the world for children and families to play and learn together.
COMING SOON: Explore & More at Canalside
The dream of building a new Explore & More Children’s Museum on the Buffalo Waterfront is becoming a reality! Our plans for a new, 40,000 square foot museum in the South Aud Block of Canalside are well underway. Learn more.
