Explore & More – The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum
Through seven educational play zones, this community-focused museum is FOR and ABOUT Buffalo, paying homage to the very attributes that make us so proud to be from Western New York. The museum’s exhibits highlight the region’s waterways, cultures, architecture, agriculture, sports, industry and innovations, sparking the imagination and unlocking the unlimited potential of our next generation of great minds. There is no better way for children to get to know Buffalo than on its resurgent waterfront at Canalside with Explore & More serving as an anchor for visiting families.
The all-new 43,000 sq. ft. building is surrounded by replica canals and bridges located at the exact ending point of the historic Erie Canal, perfectly illustrating Buffalo’s dynamic port past. The powerful New York success story continues to unfold inside the museum with an iconic two-story waterfall, canal system and working locks which beautifully illustrate Buffalo’s innovation in harnessing the power of water to move people, goods and great ideas in the Moving Water exhibit. The exhibit is one of seven play zones and three educational studios that teach through hands-on play.
