Welcome to Explore & More!

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.

  • 5 star review  My kids loved it. Great exhibits, tons of fun! Cool building with great views. Car wash, tree house and water play area were my favorite! There are 4 floors, first floor has a cafe. There are multiple family style bathrooms on each floor. Staff is very friendly.

  • 5 star review  We had my son's 5th birthday party here and it was wonderful and affordable. Lisa (our party consultant) was so helpful and made our experience amazing. It was nice to have everything taken care of, everything was clean and the food from the Cafe was perfect for a birthday party. The staff at Explore and More were friendly and helpful even when it came to booking the party. Lots of fun activities, the kids loved it. Definitely will come again!

  • 5 star review  I took my 2 year old son for the first time. If he could live here, he would! My son absolutely had a blast, didn't want to leave. We will be coming back frequently. The price is awesome. Next time we will try the cafe
