BUFFALO, NY – Just because school is out for the week doesn’t mean the learning or the fun has to stop.

For families who haven’t all been out yet, the Explore and More Children’s Museum is celebrating the holidays around the world this week during the winter break.

The African American Cultural Center will be at the museum Wednesday at noon to drum and dance in the Moving Waterways exhibit on the ground floor.

On Thursday, Barbs Book Buddies will be there for stories and activities based on the holidays from around the world.

Friday is the grand finale, New Years Eve, with a countdown until noon.

“We’ll have bubbles, a ball drop at noon and also at 3,” Chrapowicz said. “We’ll have DJ Bonkers coming in and he’s playing those family tunes, because we’re having a dance party here at the museum. We’ll also have face makeup in our art studio, and for kids and adults alike, s ‘they wish, can come and have their face made up.

This is in addition to all of the daily exhibits and activities like the Delta Sonic Car Wash, Kitchen Gallery, Treehouse, and more.

“We have a fun filled week here, we just want families to be able to play and learn together,” Chrapowicz said. “Explore and more, the Ralph C. Wilson Children’s Museum is the place to be.”
