"Their generous gift further strengthens our mission to provide children with resources and opportunities by opening doors to creativity, curiosity and imagination."

"Canalside is bustling with year-round activity and KeyBank is proud to help continue the momentum with this gift to Explore & More." said Gary Quenneville, KeyBank Upstate New York Regional Executive. "This new museum will help children learn in a fun way for years to come. Explore & More's mission mirrors our mission, helping our communities thrive, and we are proud to support their efforts."

The project is expected to bring 250,000 new visitors annually to Buffalo's waterfront.
