exploreandmoreMy family and I are always looking for activities to keep us active until summer arrives.  This past weekend we visited Explore & More Children’s Museum in East Aurora. This attraction is geared for little ones and my 5 and 3 year olds fit right in!

Upon arrival my boys headed straight for the exhibit “Building Curiosity”. Here they put on construction gear, grab some tools and get straight to work building a house or whatever their imagination allows. Then, we moved on to the Frank Lloyd Wright themed architecture center where blocks of all different shapes and sizes give children a chance to design and construct their own masterpieces.

Our next exhibit brought us to “Culture Corners” and we discovered how canal locks work with a hands-on exhibit. Next, we entered international countries and used different musical instruments, clothing, wind mills, and more to see how others live around the world.

We also visited the food exhibit, rock climbing wall and fishing boat for a fresh ‘catch of the day.’ Overall this was a great way to spend the afternoon! Explore & More has many special programs and events throughout the year.

While you’re in East Aurora save some time to visit Toy Town Museum and Vidler’s 5&10 Cent Store, two more of many family friendly attractions within this quaint village.
