The Buffalo Museum of Science is among the last of the old-school natural science museums, with the vast majority of its exhibits dating back decades. Almost none of them offer any sort of interactivity; it's very much a "look, but don't touch" kind of place where just about everything is behind a pane of glass. Today, it seems to exist mostly as a field trip destination for local elementary school students. If you want to see what a science museum looked like in the 1940s, this is the place!
When I was a kid, my parents only took me to the Buffalo Museum of Science once; every other time, it was school field trips. Mom and Dad had the good sense to make semi-regular drives to Toronto to take me to the Ontario Science Center, among other destinations.
