As a proud member of the Western New York community, Explore & More – The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum has been the benefactor of many generous donations. We feel it is our duty to pay it forward to other local community partner organizations. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a donation to every worthy cause but we work to honor as many requests as possible!
