Founded in 1994, Explore & More Children’s Museum makes every day a play date in our Educational Play Zones—exhibits that introduce children to the magic of hands-on discovery. Michelle Urbanczyk (CEO) will discuss Explore & More’s move to Canalside from their previous location in East Aurora, the success of their capital campaign, and what their new location means to their mission and to the programs and services they will be able to provide.
Join us for a unique mash-up of a Buffalo Talk AND Walk on December 5th! We will hold this month’s Buffalo Talk at the historic Shea’s Seneca location (NOT the library). Join us to learn about this repurposed gem in South Buffalo at 2178 Seneca Street. Schneider Development Services has created a multi-use building out of the former theatre. We will hear directly from Jake Schneider about the process and then he will give us a tour of the building. Hope to see you there!
