Visiting Exhibits


Visiting Exhibits Gallery
In action, June 17 – November 26, 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.

Brooklyn Children’s Museum Summer Camp Exhibition

Lobby Gallery
On view now

You’re invited to visit a special exhibit in BCM’s lobby showcasing projects created by the Museum’s Summer Camp at PS 189! Last summer in the Arts & Culture Program, campers explored the traditions of West Africa and Mexico and were inspired to create their own weavings, painted tiles, and engraved tin art. In the STEM and Neuroscience Program, campers explored the inner workings of the brain and mind through hands-on activities and experiments and learned how scientists approach problem solving.  Help us celebrate the hard work of our campers and learn more about the interdisciplinary curriculum that draws on the exhibits and collections of the Museum.
