Find Why

Why? It may be the greatest question of all. Why? It’s born of wonder and curiosity. Why? It makes us think and makes us better. Why? It moves us forward.

For nearly a century, the Buffalo Museum of Science has been a resource for why. Answering many times over. And then asking it again. From exhibits that captivate, to a staff that guides, to a collection that inspires, we are about perpetuating the amazing question of why in all who walk our halls.

This is what science is about. And everything is about science.

So come explore, discover, wonder, reason, reflect, observe, absorb, realize, dream, and – most important – question.

Find why at the Buffalo Museum of Science.
