Limited Availability: Book Early!

The Buffalo Museum of Science's special Science Theme Day programs are one of our most popular offerings for school groups. Since they are only offered on select days each year, we encourage you to make your reservation as early as possible as they do fill up quickly.

If you can't make a theme day date, we encourage you to speak to our group sales representative on how to provide equally entertaining and educational experiences to your group through our workshops and outreach programs.
