Current Projects in Development

Museum-on-the-Go for K through 3rd Grade

BCM is developing a set of collections cases geared toward Kindergarten through third grade students that will be available for activation in classrooms in December 2023. These cases will be offered at no charge, including transportation to and from schools through June 2024. Themes and curriculum were developed in partnership with kindergarten through third grade teachers from Central Brooklyn.

Collections Connections

Collections Connections is an exciting partnership between Brooklyn Children’s Museum and Brooklyn Public Library. A new set of Museum-on-the-Go cases featuring objects from BCM’s collection with themes developed in collaboration with BPL librarians will be activated in library-based family programs in 2024.

In addition, Community Gallery installations showcasing objects from BCM’s collection representing history, culture, and our natural environment can be enjoyed in branch libraries across the borough. Look for a Community Gallery in a BPL branch near you!

Museum-on-the-Go was developed through generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and The Charles H. Revson Foundation.
