Welcome to Explore & More!

A world-class children’s museum that celebrates the power of child-led play, Explore & More – The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum features four floors of fun in downtown Buffalo. The 43,000 sq. ft. museum sits at the crossroads of replica canals and bridges that have become year-round community destinations at Canalside.

The museum reflects that sense of place with thoughtfully crafted exhibits to create a welcoming community center that invites all families to play, wonder, discover, learn, and grow together.

  • 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 🙂

  • Kids had a blast. It was free for military which was a blessing. Went on a rainy day and was busy but there was so much to do.

  • Great place to go for kids of all ages. Beautiful building, both inside and outside and the staff were really nice. Worth the drive over the border.
