Group Visits to Explore & More
Enjoy 90 minutes of open exploration in our Play Zones!
Available Monday through Friday, bring your group to Explore & More for an hour and a half of play and exploration time in the Museum.
Add a Workshop Activity! During your special visit, you can also choose to add a focused workshop activity of your choice that is tied to our Play Zones and tailored to your students, their curriculum and New York State Common Core Learning Standards. Students will also be given a “passport to adventure” to help inspire their play.
Lunch and Snack Time at the Workshop Room! We all know learning works best on a full tummy—so reserve the museum’s workshop room in advance for lunch or snack time! Our workshop room has tables and chairs for up to 40 people, along with some room to sit on the floor (though for legal reasons, we have to limit the mealtime fun to 51 people). Since our workshop room hosts a lot of great activities, reservations in advance are a must!
Buses at Explore & More
Large groups visiting Explore & More on buses are asked to load and unload at the front of our building on Gleed Avenue. Students can enter the building through Door #1 on Gleed Avenue. We ask that buses remain parked on Gleed Avenue throughout the visit. Buses are not permitted in the parking lot.
NEW! Thanks to the generous sponsorship from our friends at the Niagara Frontier Automobile Dealers Association (NFADA), Explore & More is able to offer up to $200 toward the bus cost for groups who visit Explore & More from qualifying schools. Call today to find out more! 716-655-5131 ext. 22
