Museum itself is amazingly made for children, I wish I had some at that time ;)) BUT if you are just adults/teenagers, there is nothing for you there. We kind of passed through it and thought why not to go in, but then the receptionist asked us to sign special document indicating reasons why did we come here without children,... More

Children of all ages will have a great time here. The small child area is secure so they can't wander off. There are so many lovely interactive exhibits for all children.

This is a GREAT children's Museum! I have come many, many times and have brought other children with me along with my son. They all have loved it. It's smaller than Long Island Children's Museum, but still GREAT! Highly recommend!

Went there last Thursday, which was free from 3:00 - 7:00PM, every third Thursday. The 4-year-old had lots of fun. There are animals (iguana, turtles, fish), sand box, garden, shops, toddler area (older kids are not allowed to enter), handicraft area, water to play with... All are attractive to kids. Love it!

I had gotten a Groupon for the Brooklyn Children's Museum(4 admissions for $18, usually it is $9 per person). We had a pleasant experience. There was a lot for my three year daughter to do. She thoroughly enjoyed the pretend grocery store, pizza parlor and the building area. There was also a fun area for tots under the age of... More

Brooklyn is a great place and there are so many cultures here this museum helps you experience them. There's a pizzeria, supermarket, travel office, mexican bakery, a bus you can drive and be a passenger on, etc. There's a small stage area you can dance to the videos they have of the different music offered in the boro. There's sounds... More

We really love coming here and so does our now 4 year old. So much fun to be had. We especially love the water play area and the pretend stores. Our son can spend all day here if we didn't move him along. We also love Fangtasia (I think that's her name), the yellow burmese python.

Good for keeping the kids entertained on a rainy day - or even when they are just plain bored! Even the Mums and Dads enjoy it!

We took our 2 grandchildren here, ages 2 and 4, and had a wonderful day. We could not get to every activity in one day, so we returned the next week. We especially appreciated the builders corner and the pizza store. Also the lunch cafe was a lovely place to take a break. Great, educational, and fun day!

Hate going into to city, so to experience a smaller version of Egypt and more this is the place. It has hands on for the younger children but there is enough to hold interest for the older ones. My son is was 20 when we returned he still loved it.
