The Explore and More Children’s Museum announces crowdfunding with hopes that Western New Yorkers will “Play It Forward.”

They are just about six months away from realizing a dream of building a new Explore & More Children’s Museum on the Buffalo Waterfront. Construction of the 43,000 square foot museum at Canalside is well underway, and just months from completion! They are hoping to close the gap on fundraising and one way is a great way for anyone and everyone to help, to become a part of something incredible. They’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign to help complete the ‘Lighting Buffalo’s Imagination’ exhibit.

The exhibit is an interactive space that gives folks a chance to try out Buffalo-born innovations first-hand. It’s a great way to inspire children and show them what is possible!  The museum hopes to raise $100,000 for the campaign.
