Brooklyn Children’s Museum – When it was founded in 1899, the BCM was the country’s first museum specifically made for children. Today it’s one of the most comprehensive, with a permanent collection of 30,000 objects, including musical instruments, masks, dolls and fossils. In World Brooklyn exhibition, children play in kid-sized shops based on the real ones you find in neighborhoods across Brooklyn. In these environments, kids take on the roles of shopkeeper, baker, grocer, shopper, designer, performer, and builder as they gain an understanding and appreciation of the cooperative roles that enable communities to thrive. This exhibit is designed to foster a greater understanding and appreciation of the world cultures found in Brooklyn. Meanwhile, Sensory Room is an inclusive space where children of all abilities can engage with their peers and explore their senses. Sessions in the space are balanced between self-guided exploration of the space and a facilitated program by one of BCM’s Educators. The program might include story time, a song session, parachute play, or meeting one of the Museum’s live animals.

Address: 145 Brooklyn Ave. Admission: $11 (free for children under 12 months).
