What might global warming mean to WNY and the earth? What effect do you have on the environment? These are just some of the questions Globeo asks you to explore. The exhibit runs through June at the Buffalo Science Museum. To see Kevin O'Neill exploring the exhibit, click on the link to the right. GLOBEO features discovery stations that encourage visitors to explore migration patterns, forest and mountain regions, deserts, grasslands, wetlands and aquatic regions, urban ecology, and rainforests, illustrated with artifacts from the museum's extensive collections. Special focus will be included on impacts upon the Great Lakes Region. A special feature of GLOBEO is the one-of-a-kind multimedia presentation created by Ontario's Science North called "The Climate Change Show." This 20-minute show, presented in its own object-rich interactive theatre, provides an informative yet humorous overview of global warming and climate change through the eyes of some delightful animated narrators and several theatrical special effects. An additional charge of $2 will apply to this special presentation which will be shown on an hourly schedule. The additional charge is waived for museum members. Museum hours are Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 Noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for students with ID and children over age 3.
