  • We took our 2 year old for a fun morning visit here. We enjoyed seeing the animals on the 2nd floor and she loved the huge snake skin(her favorite animal is a snake). Went upstairs and loved walking t...  read more »
  • I used to take my own children to this Museum 25 years ago. My kids loved it, but it was a staid and quiet place, where education was key, interaction was nil. The museum has changed, as I just found ...  read more »

  • For the space restrictions this museum has, it makes the best of it. Very friendly staff, less friendly security. A very good place for children, a lot of the exhibits are designed to be hands on and interactive, and they even offer a hands on technology lab. Hoping the observatory is restored soon, that would be an invaluable asset to the region.
  • Not very much there after all their changes. Not really a Science museum, lacking sufficient signage for the exhibits, and lacking a lot for exhibits. Used to come here when I was young and learned a lot, now... it's pretty sad. I could teach my own kid better than this place can!
  • Really interesting science museum with something for everyone. There are a number of interesting dinosaurs! There are several interactive exhibits that really get the kids into science and technology. Also, membership is very affordable!
  • Great for exploring with the kids! Just make sure to mind the time, as it's pretty easy to get caught up in all the things to do!
  • Hidden gem in Buffalo! Kids loved the place, not very busy and reasonable prices for admission. Free parking which was shocking in this day and age. Lots of hands on exhibits for our sub-10-year-olds to enjoy.
