Three of us visited this museum, all of us liked it! The exhibits are interesting, and there are many demonstrations in which the visitor can participate! This is a very lively place I recommend to all....

....But if you’re closed for a Holiday (Easter) maybe a good idea to post something on your website or Facebook page ahead of time so if someone is planning on visiting they don’t find out you’re closed on the morning they’re planning on visiting.
Also maybe update your voicemail to indicate that today is April 1st and not March 2nd as your message states
Poorly run !

There's a lot for little people to do here. Our family likes it. The special events are way, way, WAY too busy. We don't even go anymore. You literally cannot walk through the hallways. But just for a family visit to the museum, it's a nice visit.

On a wintery Buffalo day, we took our 2+ year old granddaughter to her favorite place to visit dinosaurs, the Buffalo Museum of Science. On this school day, the parking lot was pretty full, but still lots of spaces. We bought a grandparent membership this time. She loves the dinosaurs (see pic), the big bisons and all the plains and savannah animals on display. The second floor has about a dozen interactive play opportunities. Back downstairs we also played in the younger children/ toddlers areas. Easy access to family bathrooms on this floor, and a special quiet room for families. Snack areas and small shops as well. We had a great time for about 2 hours. It can get noisy from visiting classes on school mornings, but still plenty of room and lots to do. Grandparents are everywhere.
