Since September 11, the museum has been honoring Western New York heroes, with a two-week celebration that ends Sept. 30.

All military, first responders, and essential workers will get one free admission to the museum from Sept. 11 through Sept. 30 using the code THANKYOUHEROES when you purchase passes online.

Four new art installations at Canalside, near the museum, are part of the celebration. As well, the museum held a "reverse parade" honoring first responders.

As well, your family can take part in the My Hero campaign at Explore & More, where kids can write down who their hero is, and why. They can also post photos, videos and stories about their heroes using the hashtag #ThankYouWNYHeroes.

Hot tip: there will also be special activities on the Explore & More website that might be useful for homeschool projects!
