Explore & More Children’s Museum was founded 25 years ago on the principle that play is essential to healthy development in children. Explore & More is a world-class children's museum that uses immersive exhibits to celebrate the power of child-led play and exploration across seven engaging play zones and three educational play studios. The four-story, 43,000-square-foot museum features interactive exhibits that tell the story of Western New York’s waterways, culture, traditions, architecture, agriculture, sports, industries and innovations.
Its mission is to provide best-in-class play experiences where all children, families and the community can explore, learn and develop together. This museum moved from its 6,000 square-foot East Aurora location to this new spot at Canalside in Buffalo.
