Heat Advisory

Please note: The Museum’s air circulation systems are impacted during the summer season. On hot days, the temperature in the Museum can be warm in certain areas. To plan ahead for your comfort, please be sure to bring water bottles, and dress accordingly.

If the weather is exceptionally warm on the date of your planned visit, you are welcome to reschedule your visit at no cost.



Workshop + self-guided: $9/student

Self-guided exploration: $8/student

Adults are free!

Discount pricing is available for groups that receive DYCD funding.


Lunch Space:

If you plan on bringing lunch/snacks to the museum, please let us know! We have free outdoor seating on our rooftop. If you would like to eat indoors, tables must be reserved. The cost is $10/group of 30 visitors.



All group visits take place from 10:00AM to 1:30PM.

All summer workshops are 30 minutes.

Workshops are available during four time slots:

10:15 – 10:45
11:00 – 11:30
11:45 – 12:15
12:30 – 1:00



BCM’s Totally Tots exhibit, ColorLab art studio, and Block Lab have limited capacity and are not available for self-guided group exploration.



After requesting a visit, you will receive a reservation from BCM’s Education Dept. A $25 deposit is required to confirm your spot.



BCM’s policy requires one (1) chaperone for every five (5) students. All adults are free—we encourage you to bring as many chaperones as you would like! If the 1:5 chaperone to student ratio is not met, a $25 charge is added to your invoice.



In the event that your program must be rescheduled, BCM will do its best to accommodate your group’s needs based on availability of space and educators.

Cancellations require notice of ten business days. Groups that do not provide requisite notice will forfeit their deposits.

If your group is running late, please notify us by email: group_reservations@brooklynkids.org. We will do our best to accommodate you. If your group is more than 15 minutes late for a workshop, BCM may need to reschedule your visit. Please make every effort to be on time for your scheduled time slot.

Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled time. Groups that arrive before 10am may be asked to wait outside until the Museum opens.
