I took my grandchildren to see the Mummies of the World exhibit. Exhibits change periodically. The museum offers interactive exhibits for all ages. It's a great way to spend an afternoon with or without children.

We went for the 'Mummies from around the world'. I was very interesting, we all enjoyed it. The whole museum had lots of interactive things for both adults and children.

There was no foot traffic, so we were lucky to spend as much time as we desired to enjoy the museum features. We rented the audio which enriched the experience.

Special Mummies attraction; done very well. A bit more for families with kids but we ducked in to get out of the rain and did very much enjoy the Mummy exhibit. This museum was very well organized and seemed like it would be great for families.

I went to the Buffalo Museum of Science exclusively to see the "Mummies" exhibition, however, found the rest of the museum to offer something to everyone. There are exhibits on evolution, dinosaurs, mammals, health, insects, and of course--"Mummies of the World". They even have 3D films scheduled. They have a cute cafe called "Elements CaFe" that offered well-priced good food.... More

The exhibit of mummies was very informative. Especially knowing that there are several different types of mummies from bog to ancient style including a few from the17th century. Our grandchildren were educated about ancient techniques of mummification. Very informative.
