Buffalo Museum of Science

Enter a world where you can explore weather, bodies, bugs, physics and more, all in one place. Buffalo’s world-class science museum also features a 3-D movie theater. 

The Buffalo Museum of Science takes learning out of the classroom and into a series of world-class exhibits. Join visitors of all ages enjoying fascinating experiences at Buffalo’s favorite museum.

In Motion is one of the newest and most popular exhibits. Enter the gravity machine or race customized cars. Use gears, levers, belts and pulleys to create a unique invention. 

To learn more about the planet we all call home, stop by Our Marvelous Earth. This exhibit makes weather phenomena and geological processes easy to understand. Step into a wind chamber to understand the difference between a light breeze and a tornado. Become a weather forecaster and predict the next big storm. 

Explore YOU is an exhibit where you can learn about your body and health. Explore body systems and parts though a giant touchscreen of a human’s torso. Investigate genetics, medical technology and local achievements in scientific research.  

Get to know our human predecessors in Artifacts, an anthropological exhibit. Learn how diets have changed throughout time, how languages compare across cultures and how everyday tools have evolved.   See over 1,500 insect specimens in the Bug Works gallery. Learn about the earth’s creepy crawlers though bug displays and colorful exhibits.  

Explorations is an interactive gallery designed for the museum’s youngest visitors. Toddlers will love exploring scientific concepts through fun activities. Here, they can create their own skyscrapers or dress as creatures in a specific ecosystem.  

Soar into another world from the comfort of your seat at the National Geographic 3-D Cinema. It brings in new films several times a year, so check with the museum to see what is playing.  Internationally touring shows, such as the famous Mummies of the World, frequently stop here and stay for weeks or months. Make your visit extra special with the current show.   

The Buffalo Museum of Science is open every day, except major holidays. There is a small admission fee, with discounts for seniors, students and children. Seeing a film has an additional fee. Park your car for free in the museum’s parking lot.
