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.

  • Was fun! I've only been to the one in East Aurora a few years back. It was exciting to see my two boys play with all the exhibits, and enjoy themselves

  • 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!

  • 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 🙂

  • Lots of fun things for kids to do. I went on a trip with about 11 kids around the age of 5 and there was a lot of stuff to do. Many floors of fun.
