About Brooklyn Children's Museum

A pioneer in education, Brooklyn Children’s Museum was the first museum created expressly for children when it was founded in 1899. Its success has sparked the creation of 300 children’s museums around the world. With award-winning, hands-on exhibits and innovative use of its collections, the Museum engages children from pre-school to high school in learning adventures. It is the only children’s museum in New York City, and one of few in the country, to be accredited by the American Association of Museums.

Mission

Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s mission is to provide first cultural experiences for children and families that inspire curiosity, creativity, and lifelong love of learning.

 

Vision

Brooklyn Children’s Museum promotes cultural literacy through experimentation and exploration. We believe in the power of culture to help children and families find comfort, resilience and stimulation. We work to ensure that all children have access to cultural learning opportunities that build empathy, encourage creative thought and problem solving, and inspire global citizenship.
