BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Explore and More Children’s Museum was given a big boost towards its project at Canalside.

Wegman’s Food Markets and the Wegman Family Charitable Foundation donated over $1 million on Thursday to help fund a new museum being built along Buffalo’s waterfront.

“Not only can we already picture it. We’re already starting preliminary designs. We’re working with architectural teams. Both Erie Canal Harbor’s architectural team, and our architechtural team. What we see is just an amazing learning opportunity,” said a museum official.

The new 40,000-square foot museum is set to open in 2016.
