Spring Gala

Spring Gala 2022

Wednesday, June 1, 2022

Thank you for joining us to celebrate Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s community service over the past two years. BCM was one of the only children’s museums in the Northeast to provide safe, social experiences for families throughout the pandemic, and was the first children’s museum in the country to offer onsite vaccinations.

Your ticket purchase and donations support the Museum’s exhibits, programs, and resources for Brooklyn families.

Couldn’t make it? Consider making a donation!

Funds raised support Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s programs and exhibits, serving nearly 300,000 children and adults annually, over 30% of whom access our programs free of charge. All donations to Brooklyn Children’s Museum are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.
