 Join Explore & More as we celebrate heroes in the Western New York community with Honk for Heroes presented by GEICO. This free event surrounding the museum is open to the public for families to meet first responders and show their appreciation. We will welcome our NYS Trooper, US Coast Guard and Buffalo Fire Department friends among our heroes!

Inside the museum there will be first responder/hero-related activities all day long with free admission offered for first responders and their families and discounted admission at $6 for all guests. First responders will be outside the museum from 11 am-1 pm with in-museum activities from 10 am-4 pm.
