Join us as we mark each season with a new festival series: learn about food justice in the fall, uncover the history of Brooklyn Children’s Museum in the winter, experience the natural world in the spring, and enjoy art from around the world in the summer!

Join us for our next festival:


Wednesday, December 26 – Sunday, December 30, 2018
Did you know that Kwanzaa was first celebrated in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga who created the holiday to honor African heritage and African-American culture? Today, Kwanzaa is celebrated all over the United States, including at Brooklyn Children’s Museum! Join us this year as we mark our 10th annual Kwanzaa celebration with the largest family Kwanzaa event in New York City! Over five days of culture and fun, we will learn about this African-American holiday and explore Kwanzaa’s seven principles: unity; self-determination; collective work and responsibility; cooperative economics; purpose; faith; and creativity.
