This is a wonderful collection of interactive exhibits for children 2 to 10. The three-year-old in our family loves it. So do we.
Museums in Manhattan normally set the standard for quality, but in the case of children's museums, the Brooklyn Children's Museum easily bests the one in Manhattan. Located a few blocks off Eastern Parkway and not far from the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Children's Museum offers a wide range of interesting, interactive exhibits and hands-on activities for youngsters.

Something for children (and adults) of all ages. From play to learning; quiet time to exploration, a great place to bring children and let them explore and enjoy the world around them.
I am wondering if the Brooklyn Childrens Museum I sometimes take my grandchildren to is the same boring place described in some of the reviews. Here are some of the activities my grandchildren (preschoolers) love-- *the grocery store--lots of pretend food, baskets to carry it in, counters and cash registers *the water play area--plenty of splashy and squirty fun--plastic aprons...

At the time of our visit to the Brooklyn's Childrens Museum, there was some heavy construction work happening in certain parts of the building. This meant that a minority of areas could temporarily not be accessed and there was a degree of noise from the machinery. However, the museum have taken this in to account and we were allowed access... More
I visited the museum a couple of weeks ago with my two children and my friend and her two children. We were very disappointed. First off, the museum is in a not so nice area of Brooklyn. I felt very uneasy driving in this neighborhood. When we arrived, our kids were hungry so we went upstairs to get something to... More
Any kids would LOVE to be here but if you're an adult, you may be slightly bored. There's really not much to see except the small garden inside. The place is small but kids can spend an hour running around in a small room so they won't be bored. There's a few small animals to look at and one long... More
For parents there is not so much to do on this place. For kids (2-10) it is the place to be. Better than any other kids museum in NYC area. The nice thing in this place is the interation of the kids with the place. It's not simply a place to "see" things but rather a place to "interact" with... More
Sand, sand and more sand! Why are children so fascinated with sand and water? Not sure- but after my last visit to the BCM about ten years ago I was pleasantly surprised by the renovations and new interactive exhibits. There is a toddler only play area which is great and safe to wander around from art zone (make super hero... More
We took our 3 year old son to the museum whilst we were visiting New York. He spends a half day immersing himself in all the exhibits and play areas - the water zone was his favorite. Clean and specious cafe to feed little ones light snacks and various activities will keep young children entertained for a day. We'll go... More
