Overview: At the Buffalo Museum of Science, we take pride in providing an environment that inspires curiosity, self-directed learning, and fun for our guests of all ages. All staff are recruited, trained, directed, and developed with this in mind. We believe that science is fun and that everyone can be a scientist when they make observations and ask questions. Research shows that when you mix GREAT SERVICE with GREAT PEOPLE, the result is LASTING MEMORIES for our guests.
