Visiting Exhibits


Visiting Exhibits Gallery
On view, June 17 – October 22, 2017

Inspired by adventure playgrounds, MakerYard, Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s newest exhibition, invites children to test their motor skills and imaginations as they construct, build, and invent structures and other creations using everyday materials such as cardboard, tape, fabric, string and recyclables. Parents and caregivers are invited to sit back and let children explore independently, or work collaboratively to create together.

MakerYard will be open 2-5pm on Thursday and Fridays, and 11-4pm on Saturday and Sundays.
