When they have special exhibits we love to go. We went the first time years ago just to see the place. It was a good time. Years later we came back to see Mummies of the World and we were kinds disappointed to see that nothing new was there. There are a lot of things for kids to interact with... More

I love this place! Every time I go I learn something new! This place is great for kids as well! There is so much to do and see. I love the mummies and the astronomy part on the top floor. So many memories were made here when I was a kid and I can't wait to make more every time... More

I visit a lot of museums all over the world so I wasn't expecting Buffalo to have such a modern well put together museum but it really impressed me. I went with a friend to see the mummies exhibit which was a nice overview of the subject but a lot of information I already knew about. We had a ton... More

My friends recommended that I take my children to see the Mummies of the World exhibit. Coming from the So. Tier of NY, I really didn't know what to expect. I will admit that we had admission price shock. With five of us, it emptied out my wallet. Adults were $22 Food is available for purchase in the cafeteria but... More

In addition to the mummy exhibit, there are several floors filled with things to see. There are exhibits on space, the human body, earth elements, bugs, technical gadgets, etc. Make sure you explore every nook and cranny to take full advantage of your $22 visit. Young children will definitely enjoy the hands on activities, but my husband and I also... More

09/21/14 visited the Museum to check out the mummies. With a $22.00 charge i guess i just expected more. I found the display to be informational & interesting. We kept looking around the corner for more mummies. The rest of the Museum has been modified for families with younger children. Plenty of gadgets and hands on stuff for the kiddies..... More

We went today to see the Mummies, which were amazing and very eerie. The display for the mummies, the music, the low lighting and the lack of children in the exhibit was excellent. They also asked that everyone respect the dead, which resulted in everyone treating it like a library (which was perfect!). However, the museum itself was geared mostly... More

i didn't appreciate the high, high price of admission that hinged on a rather mundane mummy exhibit.
