Fun for Really Young Kids - Brooklyn Children's Museum

For people traveling around New York with kids, finding something fun for the youngsters to do can be challenging.  However, the Brooklyn Children's Museum is an engaging museum for children under 10 years old.  Though the museum doesn't offer much to entertain older kids or adults, this place is a perfect way to keep the younger kids busy by allowing them to do really interactive activities by themselves and with other children.

NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: Located at Brower Park, in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Children's Museum boasts a permanent collection of 30,000 cultural objects and natural history specimens. The exhibits are kid-friendly, highly innovative, and often interactive.

Why We Go: First founded in 1899, the Brooklyn Children's Museum was the first museum in the United States to cater specifically to children. It is one of only a few children's museums in the United States to be accredited by the American Association of Museums.

  • Excellence: Unlike most children's museums in New York, which are often nothing more than glorified play spaces, the Brooklyn Children's Museum promises a rich, educational, and memorable experience for children of all ages. The museum's fun, dynamic, and inspiring exhibits encourage children to learn about themselves, others, and the world around them.
  • Green Design: In 2008, the Brooklyn Children's Museum became New York City's first "green" museum. The building itself (which is in fact yellow) uses environmentally advanced, sustainable, renewable and/or recyclable materials and systems to help preserve and protect the world's natural resources.
  • Impressive Collection: The Brooklyn Children's Museum boasts a permanent collection of 30,000 cultural objects and natural history specimens, including toy cars, kites, mechanical banks, and fossils of plants and animals.

Inside Knowledge: One of only a few children's museums to be accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Brooklyn Children's Museum was founded in 1899 with the intention of enriching the lives of children through innovative, hands-on programs and exhibits. In 2005, the museum was expanded to accommodate its annual 400,000 visitors.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Arrive Early: If you decide to visit the Brooklyn Children's Museum, we recommend arriving early in the day, while your kids are still active and alert. Plus, if you arrive early you'll have plenty of time to view all the exhibits, so you won't feel rushed.
  • Do Bring a Change of Clothes: If you or your kids plan on participating in some of the water-themed activities, we recommend bringing a change of clothes (smocks are provided, but these aren't always enough to keep you dry). Also, plan on doing these activites last, so that you won't shiver through the other exhibits.
  • Don't Forget to Grab a Bite: The Brooklyn Children's Museum features an on-site cafeteria where you can purchase food and drinks. Note that food is not allowed in the exhibit galleries. A pizza place and fruit market stand within walking distance.
  • Don't Break the Bank: General admission to the Brooklyn Children's Museum is only $7.50 - barely half of what you'd pay at any one of the museums in Manhattan. Children under 1 get in free.
