Explore & More: A Children’s Museum auSome Program

Expanding Programming for Children with Autism

Explore & More – The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum in Buffalo is not only expanding, but reimagining programming for children with autism and sensory processing disorders. Since 1999, Explore & More has offered a welcoming, dynamic environment for all children age 10 and younger regardless of creed, race, gender, sexual orientation, or physical abilities — fulfilling its commitment to equity, access and inclusion.

As the only hands-on interactive children’s museum in Western New York, Explore & More Children’s Museum received $71,472 from the Foundation to continue Au-Some Evenings — a free monthly program that includes activities like therapy dogs and art, and has a caregiver program, virtual experiences and host small groups in the museum for children with autism.
