Buffalo Museum of Science
The Buffalo Museum of Science offers educational and exciting experiences the whole family can enjoy. From special traveling exhibits to a National Geographic 3D Cinema, collections of over 700,000 artifacts and specimens and its interactive science studios, BMS is always “inspiring curiosity through exploration”.
Record your own weather forecast or step into a wind chamber in Our Marvelous Earth, explore health and the human body in Explore YOU, build your own gravity wall in the In Motion studio, explore over 1,500 insect specimens in Bug Works, or discover science with your toddler and young scientists in the Explorations early childhood gallery.
Special workshops and classes are also available every month; preregistration is required and available online.
The Buffalo Museum of Science and Tifft Nature Preserve offer distinctive spaces for your next event too. From dancing in our grand Hamlin Hall to stargazing from the Museum’s rooftop, BMS offers a unique location your guests are sure to remember. You may even rent out the entire museum if you wish. Enhance your event with special science programming and/or admission to special traveling exhibits, when available. Tifft Nature Preserve, the museum’s urban nature sanctuary in South Buffalo, offers 264 acres of natural beauty just minutes from downtown Buffalo.
