Great for kids! Adults should be free.

Great little children's museum with lots of exhibits. It can be very crowded on the weekends and a bit chaotic - but well worth it during the week for the smaller crowd. Adults... read more

This is a fairly low tech hands on play space. Our grandchildren loved it from age 16 months to 5 yes. Let's them use their imaginations, fine and gross motor skills in a safe space. Plenty of seats for grandma.

The museum is small over priced and not worth it. Alot of prices were broken or out of service. The multicultural exhibits are outdated and borderline racist.

I think this place is great for kids and families. I missed places like this when our family moved to western NYS from Mass. Which was very family oriented with things to do. So. Greatly appreciated this museum.

Very disappointed. $7 per person. Free only for 1 and under. Grandparents came with us when I took my 1.5 year old son. We spend $28 for nothing. The museum was too small, had a cheap feeling, a lot of materials were missing or broken. Will not return.

Before I moved back to the Buffalo area, we would visit the area quite a bit. We always visited a trip to Explore and More. It's a great place for the kids to be engaged in non-computer gaming gadgets (as a childhood should be). What's wonderful about Explore and More, is that it can be relaxing for the adults. This...

The day I took my daughter the place was so chaotic I almost turned around 1/2 way through the door. I heard such great things so I thought we would at least try. My 18 month old was basically run over by all the "big kids" just running all around. It was hard to find a quiet place to play... More
