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.

  • This is a very well thought out children's museum! Every section allows creativity to abound. They also had a magician that was excellent and face painting. My granddaughter is autistic and they catered to her by having a staff member educated towards special needs children. Every aspect has been thought out. Bravo to the design team for this wonderful experience!

  • 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.
