Science Museum Expands Adult Programming

We all know the Buffalo Museum of Science has plenty of attractions for kids, but what about adults? Apparently, that same question occurred to the museum and they came up with a solution: the Lilian Fairchild Travel Series takes an audience and through photographs and speakers gives them glimpses of places all over the globe. Now, the popular program, which was previously only available on Wednesdays, will also be available on Sundays.
Sunday Specials have been added throughout the Fall lineup to help grow the audience for this program. Buying tickets to the program also gains you entry into the museum’s latest exhibit – “Culture Quest.” What’s great about this program is that though it’s more adult-oriented, it’s still a fantastic program for children. The price of admission for the museum doesn’t change for the program, so it’s still $7 for adults, $6 for Seniors, $5 for students and kids over the age of 3, free to children 3 years old and under, and free to museum members. If you’d like more information, visit the museum’s website or call 896-5200.

Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
