Providing a great variety of interactive exhibitions and programs which draw upon issues relevant to the interests of its visitors, the Brooklyn Children's Museum is a wonderful place for a day with the family and for teachers with their students. This is the world's first museum for young people. Programs and exhibits are based on a remarkable collection of 30,000 cultural artifacts and natural history specimens, live plants and animals, and award-winning exhibitions. 

Workshops and Special Events are offered to families and the general public. Call the Museum for a calendar. 

School Groups from grades Pre-K to 12 can participate in programs that enrich and supplement the New York State curriculum. Some examples of School Programs: The Mysteries of Things for grades 3 - 12 explores cultural artifacts from around the world, unlocking their hidden secrets and teaching the special meanings people give to objects. Night Journeys for grades 2 - 8 introduces the world of sleep and dreams, unveiling the dream experience as seen by various cultures. Ready, Set, Grow! for Pre-K and grade 1 teaches children about nutrition, health, and caring for the earth.
