There are two types of tickets: Play Sessions and ColorLab Workshops. Play Sessions allow families to explore BCM’s signature exhibits including World Brooklyn, Neighborhood Nature, Totally Tots, Collections Central and The Nest. ColorLab Workshops are art-making workshops in the Museum’s art studio that offer families an 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.

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.

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.

Due to necessary repairs, our building is experiencing warmer temperatures than usual. We encourage visitors to bring a water bottle and be prepared for limited air conditioning in our space.
