Make Future Plans to Be a Part of Explore & More's New Museum!

Turning Dreams into Reality

The dream of building a new Explore & More Children's Museum on the Buffalo Waterfront is becoming a reality!  


Our plans for our new, 40,000 sf museum in the South Aud Block of Canalside are well underway!  We are completing our schematic deisgns, and are doing well in our two-year Play It Forward capital campaign!  Last winter, we announced two major gifts from both Wegmans Food Markets and the Wegman Family Charitable Foundation totaling over $1 million.  In addition, we were recently awarded over $750,000 in generous local foundation support from The Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, The John R. Oishei Foundation, and others! And we are so grateful for the many other generous capital gifts that continue to come in, as well.  We are on track to open the new museum at Canalside in 2016!


You can get involved by volunteering at the museum or on one of our committees.  We have IMMEDIATE OPENINGS available in our Docent Program!  If you have an interest in helping us with our activities or programs, please call us today at 655-5131 ext. 16.  


For more information about getting involved, plan on attending a Show & Tell presentation!   Make a reservation today for an upcoming Show & Tell presentation by calling 655-5131 ext. 15, or email
