Explore more than 55 hands-on exhibits in a "please touch" environment that teaches natural sciences, social studies, arts and life experiences. A balance between education and entertainment is programmed to develop a sense of excitement and discovery.

WINTER ACTIVITIES-Hundreds of miles of trails groomed by five local snowmobile clubs provide an ideal setting for riding over old railroad beds, former trolley lines, open farm fields, heavily wooded areas, and seasonal roads. Trails officially open a week or so before Christmas, weather permitting. New York requires that all sleds be registered so check for details before you travel.



Winter is a great time to stop at the wineries in Lake Erie Wine Country. Tasting rooms are less crowded, the experience is more educational and intimate, and many new vintages are released. Also winter and Ice Wine, a specialty dessert wine unique to the northern climate, just naturally go together. Visit during the annual Wine and Chocolate Weekend, February 16-18, 2018 for a post Valentine’s treat. Each of the participating wineries will pair a luscious chocolate creation with a wine accompaniment.

President’s Day Weekend brings with it the annual Winter Festival in Mayville, February 16-18, 2018 featuring events, activities, and contests for all ages including fireworks, a flare parade, bonfire and horse drawn wagon rides. If the weather cooperates, you might see a castle made from blocks of ice harvested in the traditional way from Chautauqua Lake.
