Continuing our mission of inspiring curiosity through exploration, the Buffalo Museum of Science and Tifft Nature Preserve will offer a variety of special activities throughout the final holiday weeks of 2016.
The Buffalo Museum of Science will present Polar Activities on December 23rd and December 26th to January 2nd. Polar Activities will take place from 11am to 2pm in Hamlin Hall. Visitors will learn how animals are able to survive in their environments through M.A.D. (migrate, adapt, die). Experience first-hand how some animals adapts to the cold, why others move to warmer climates and what happens if an animal cannot do either. Guests will also explore winter Animal Tracks. A winter scene can appear as if there are no signs of life but upon closer examination, discover how we can tell what animals are adapting to the weather, where they are living and what they are eating.
On December 23rd and from December 26th through December 31st, from 11am to 2pm, guests will enjoy the wonders of space and space exploration for one final time before the science studio, “Our Place In Space” closes for renovations! Peer through a telescope and see how scientists view distant celestial bodies. Visitors will also enjoy designing their own space suit to “survive” the extremes of space.
Polar and Space Activities are included with Museum admission and free for BMS members. Pre-registration is not required.
The Buffalo Museum of Science and Tifft Nature Preserve (Visitor Center) will be closed on December 24th and 25th in observance of the Christmas holiday. Complete details on holiday offerings at both the Buffalo Museum of Science and Tifft Nature Preserve are available at www.sciencebuff.org
