A world-class children’s museum that celebrates the power of child-led play has arrived at Buffalo’s doorstep. With four floors of fun to explore, the 43,000 sq. ft. museum sits at the crossroads between replica canals and bridges that have become year-round community destinations. The museum reflects that sense of place with thoughtfully crafted exhibits that help children develop a deeper sense of our world, our community and their place in it in a fun and engaging way for children and adults alike.

  • My son is 10 at first. I thought he would not enjoy it since there were a lot of smaller children, but he had a blast! Also, there is a pier across the street, and we had a nice walk afterward 🙂

  • We absolutely loved our time at this museum! Our 8 and 4 year olds were captivated by each exhibit. There were activities for each type of learner. We spent about 3 hours inside but could’ve stayed even longer. The facility was very clean and the employees were super friendly. The materials for each activity were well kept and put away neatly for the next user.

  • It's a great place to take the kids. So much fun thought provoking activities. Photo booth was a little extra, but the kids loved it.
