Play Session

Play Session tickets allow families to explore BCM’s signature exhibits including World Brooklyn, Neighborhood Nature, Totally Tots, Collections Central and The Nest. Every Play Session includes access to our ColorLab art studio, where families have the opportunity to explore print-making, collage and sculpture projects inspired by artists such as Elizabeth Catlett, Richard Hunt, Faith Ringgold and Kehinde Wiley, among others.

Play Sessions are 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and 2pm-5pm on Thursdays. The Museum is closed between 1pm-2pm for cleaning.

Skate & Play Session

Grab your winter coat and warmest pair of socks and get ready for our new large-scale winter installation on the rooftop of Brooklyn Children’s Museum! Opening December 10, ArtRink is a 3,200 square foot outdoor ice skating rink and art exhibition showcasing the work of sixteen local artists. Together with a number of winter-themed activations, ArtRink is a one-of-a-kind art & play experience for families and kids this holiday season.

ArtRink is open to all BCM visitors during regular Museum hours beginning Friday, December 10 from 2pm–5pm. Skate & Play Sessions include 60-minutes of skate time and are $23 for the general public (includes general admission to the Museum) and $8 for BCM Members. Capacity is limited and we highly encourage you to book tickets online!

For our Play Sessions, we currently provide free or discounted tickets to Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC), Cool Culture, Culture Pass, EBT/SNAP card holders, healthcare worker, NYPD, FDNY, Military Families, teachers, corporate members and several other partners. To book tickets under these programs and partnerships, please visit BCM in person and we will provide you tickets for that day or for a future date. We reserve a block of tickets for these partners to ensure there will always be access for our partners.

All tickets are non-refundable. Tickets can be exchanged up to 72 hours prior to the event date, based on availability. Due to strict capacity limitations, BCM regrets that tickets may not be available on your chosen date.

BCM has an outdoor roof canopy, and in general programs happen rain or shine. If a program is canceled due to weather or other circumstances, BCM will notify ticket-buyers as soon as possible. If the event is rescheduled, tickets will be exchanged for the new date. If the event cannot be rescheduled, tickets will be refunded.

Tickets will not be refunded if a visitor is asked to leave Brooklyn Children’s Museum because they do not comply with BCM’s Safe Space Policy, our Health & Safety Protocols, or federal, state or local laws. We ask that you review these policies with your family prior to your visit.
