Learn with Us

The Buffalo Museum of Science is the premiere destination for science learning in Western New York. We can’t wait to welcome your school to our museum for self-guided Discovery Visits, guided tours, and hands on workshops. Dinosaurs, insects, rocks, animals, and four floors of interactive exhibits and displays are ready to be discovered when you book your school trip to the museum.

If you can’t come to the museum, let us bring the museum to you! We offer several ways for your students to experience our engaging STEM experiences from the comfort of their own classroom:

  • Virtual Field Trips that include pre-recorded content from the exhibit halls at BMS and the trails at Tifft followed by live, virtually facilitated activities
  • Invite our facilitators into your school or schoolyard for an interactive Classroom Outreach, Assembly Program, or Science Fun Festival
  • Host our Zygmunt Planetarium at your school to allow your students to discover their solar system and beyond
