How your support makes an impact

As a non-profit organization, Brooklyn Children’s Museum depends on its community of supporters to deliver high quality programs and exhibits to our audience of 275,000 annual visitors.

30% of our audience is served free of charge. Programs like after school provide entirely free year-round enrichment and childcare to 80 families in Crown Heights, Brownsville, and East New York. We recently double the number of free hours we offer each week to ensure more families can take advantage of it. We host high quality performances that highlight the rich cultural landscape of Brooklyn.

Your support directly impacts our ability to provide formative cultural experience and foster a love of learning for Brooklyn children.
