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  I took my 5 and 6 year old yesterday for the first time. They LOVED it!! The exhibits were interactive and engaging and kept them busy for hours! In terms of COVID - workers were CONSTANTLY sanitizing everything and there were rules for social distancing, which made us feel safe. We especially loved the crafting rooms - lots of unlimited supplies for creating and recreating. Overall, the place was gorgeous, the lay out was great, and the activities were a great mix of play and education. We will definitely be going back! The kids are curious to see what the rooftop set up is all about during the warmer weather months. 😁😁

  • 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
