Today was my first visit to the museum and I had such a good time I joined! I love science and this place has all kinds. The exhibits are mostly interactive and fun. There were lots of school children there having fun while learning, but there were also senior citizens having fun and learning. The staff are friendly and helpful. I plan on going back soon to see one of the 3D movies and just take more time playing and learning :-)

There really is something for every age at this museum. They also have special exhibits, so check their website for details. Bring a lunch or a snack for the kids and enjoy it in their "cafe" area. Are you a nursing Mom? No worries, as they have a comfortable room if you choose to have a quiet space.

The Buffalo Science Museum is a small facility dedicated to science exploration aimed at the younger set. It is in fact co-located with a high school. Exhibits range from anthropology to zoology (A-Z, get it?). It has many hands-on experiences in addition to displays. Good for a couple of hours.

Took our 10 year old granddaughter who was visiting from Delaware to the museum and had a good time walking through the exhibits and exploring what the museum has to offer. Many of the hands on activities/displays were extremely crowded due to spring break but she still enjoyed herself and would have spent more time if we'd had it.
