Winter weather is never an excuse to stop exploring, especially in the Queen City. Here are 10 reasons you’ll want to add the Buffalo Museum of Science to your list of wintertime destinations.
#1: Explore The New-And-Improved Museum
Major renovations have been happening for the last 5 years. Check ‘em out. Don’t worry, the taxidermy grizzly bear is still there to get a new generation of Museum-goers’ adrenaline pumping.
#2: Experience the Adult-Only Experience
News flash! The Museum isn’t just for kids! There’s adult-only programming, including new hands-on workshops and “Science After Hours.” Experimenting with color-changing cocktails and mocktails? That’s a science we totally need to know about.
#3: Get Interactive at digiPlaySpace
This playground features 14 different interactive digital activities created by artists around the world. Think navigating a 3D virtual race course, stepping into a green-screen, and producing vibrant pixel art. This one is equally as fun for kids and adults, trust us.
#4: Plan a Date: Exploration Edition
The next time you’re spending some one-on-one time with your SO, head to the Museum. Plan a weekend day date, or a Wednesday date night when doors are open until 9 p.m. for an inexpensive, unique option. You can also skip the traditional Valentine’s Day fare and check out Science After Hours: Science of Attraction!
#5: Give an Experience This Holiday Season
A Museum membership is a gift that keeps on giving. For just $50, you can gift 12 months of museum trips to a very lucky recipient. Guest and family packages are available too.
#6: Get a Clue (Literally)
Everyone’s favorite murder mystery game is back on Jan. 19! You and a team of friends work together to gather clues to determine whodunit, the weapon of choice, and the scene of the crime.
#7: Buy Tickets to Beerology
Science is on tap at this event with four floors of beer tastings. Count us in. This must-attend fundraising event is back on March 24. Tickets are on sale now, so don’t snooze and lose (VIP is already sold out!).
#8: Step Up Your Selfie Game
The Buffalo Museum of Science is pretty Insta-worthy, and the selfie opps are endless. Start your quest for postable pics with one of the Museum’s most famous residents – Stuffy the Bison.
#9: Take a Behind-the-Scenes Collections Tour
These exclusive tours allows you to see what few have seen and explore some of the Museum’s thousands of specimens not on display.
#10: Plan a Party for Little Learners
This one’s for the kiddos. Diggin’ Dinosaurs, Bubble Blast, Science Below Zero, and Super Snooper themed parties sound like a dream for a little birthday boy or girl. Parent of the year, much?
