Spring Gala

Spring Gala 2023

Thursday, June 1, 2023

Join us for a night when adults take over the Museum, enjoying Brooklyn’s best cocktails and food in the Museum’s exhibits. We bring together more than 400 business and philanthropic leaders at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s Spring Gala to raise critical funds for the Museum.

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

Can’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.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees for their ongoing support
