Brooklyn Children museum

A pioneer in education, Brooklyn Children’s Museum was the first museum created expressly for children when it was founded in 1899. Its success has sparked the creation of 300 children’s museums around the world. With award-winning, hands-on exhibits and innovative use of its collections, the Museum engages children from pre-school to high school in learning adventures. It is the only children’s museum in New York City, and one of few in the country, to be accredited by the American Association of Museums. Admission is free every third Thursday of the month 4:00–7:00pm and the FIRST FULL WEEKEND of every month 2:00–5:00pm, except on holiday weekends. (Does not apply to school, camp, or other organized groups.)
