The kids and I have a bunch of “field trips” planned for the summer. Last week’s trip was to the Amherst Museum.
Would definitely recommend this place. It’s along the same lines as Genesee Country Museum, but on a smaller scale. They had two exhibits that my kids loved – one was a pioneer kitchen (all stuff that they could play with and touch) and the other was an exhibit on the Erie Canal, complete with a full-sized packet boat model.
The price is cheap ($5.00 for adults and 1.50 for kids. Under 5 free – the website prices haven’t been updated). It is fairly small, so doesn’t take too long to get through, and it seemed to keep my two-year-old’s attention pretty well.
If you don’t mind driving a bit to get there, this is a nice “morning” field trip. We stopped for lunch & ice cream on the way back and had a great time! Try it out!
