Great time for all ages. Even a great toddler area on the first floor. Well worth the cost of admission. We will be back again especially during winter months.

Great, interactive and fun museam that our kids spent all day at. Even if your child is interested in reading about the exhibits, the interaction is well-worth their time. We will be going back soon for sure.

This is a wonderful small museum that as well maintained. It is an excellent place to take children or grandchildren. We have been there many times. The dinosaur exhibits were great, the human body exhibits were fabulous. Everything is upscale and fun

On a trip to Buffalo, I had an afternoon to kill and five children, from 14 to 6 years old, to entertain. On the suggestion of my sister, who lived in Buffalo, we went to the Buffalo Museum of Science. Being from a small town in South Alabama, we don't have many museums to go to and my kids were...

My young kids love Buffalo museum of science. It's their favorite place to visit in Buffalo. Parents may agree with the opinion that small but decent museum is the best place for both kids and parents. This place is for young kids enough to enjoy for more than 2 hours. If you have annual family membership of science museum in... More

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 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
