About the Brooklyn Children's Museum:
The Brooklyn Children's Museum has been a leader since its inception in 1899 -- the first museum of its kind, it inspired the creation of over 300 children's museums world-wide. The Brooklyn Children's Museum offers engaging exhibits of all sorts for kids. The Totally Tots area offers sand and water stations, a climbing area, a reading room, kid-sized cars, and more for visitors to the museum under 5. Together in the City features dozens of stations inspiring creativity and role play for older children -- from Grandma's Attic to the Pizza Parlor, kids will enjoy themselves and barely realize they are learning at the same time. The Animal Outpost features birds, snakes, turtles and bugs all displayed at "kid-level" and offers stations where children can draw what they see in the displays, just like real scientists. In MusicMix, kids can play drums, xylophones, and whistles and learn about instruments from around the world. Daily activities include arts and crafts projects, theater performances and more, all included with admission.
