This museum is fun, but isn’t as big as others we have visited. Some features were not working when we were there (computers weren’t on the right screens?), which was disappointing. The younger kids (2 and 3) had a hard time keeping up. The mummy exhibit was cool, but it’s dark and the kids weren’t super interested. They loved the play area right inside the door more than any other area it seemed. They did love the archaeology dig area though. I’d go again, but with expectations that it’s not as good as other museums nearby.

I love museums, growing up the Buffalo Museum of Science was one diorama after another.Informational but dull. A recent saw quite the chang, many more interactive exhibits, a new spin on the animals and science that surrounds us. I used to think our museums paled in comparison to closeby Toronto, no longer. So impressed we became members!

It was slightly disappointing, because I have seen other Egyptian exhibits. This one was small, interesting but a let down. To be the beginning of a tour, have no gift shop to speak of and no mementos to buy was very disappointing. The Buffalo museum of science should have been better prepared, there wasn't even a program.

This is a great place for kids I imagine. Unfortunately, we were there as two 60-year olds, and although it is well done, it is very much geared for children. It is neat, clean and well organized. But the hands-on exhibits and displays are for children. It was an OK place but we won't go again. Not a lot of parking. We were done in about an hour... with kids it would take longer as they would want to "play" with the interactives.

The design of the museum indicates that it was primarily meant to be a means of 'infotainment' to children and school students. Simulation of earthquakes and experimenting with designs, smells in space and simulation of various intensities of wind etc were extremely good. Children visiting the place not only enjoy it but gain an appreciable amount off knowledge.
