Au-Some Evening

December 10, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We’re celebrating a very merry Au-Some Evening this December. Children will enjoy a visit from Santa Claus himself and can even take home a special photo! As always we’ll have sensory-friendly spaces throughout the museum, as well as quiet kits and lots of fun, hands-on activities for children to flourish! Friendly reminders: • Many in attendance have complex medical needs, therefore, children are strongly encouraged to wear face masks, and adults are required to wear face masks at all times. • Children must be supervised by an adult at all times. To register for the event, please email [email protected] or call 716.655.5131 ext. 7071o register for the event, please email


Au-Some Evenings are brought to us through the generous support of Mother Cabrini Health Foundation and the Maria Love Convalescent Fund.
