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.

ColorLab Workshops are one hour long and take place on weekends within Play Sessions. During the AM Play Session (10am-1pm), your ColorLab Workshop takes place between 11:45am-12:45pm. During the PM Play Session (2pm-5pm), your workshop takes place between 2:30pm-3:30pm. Before and after your workshop you are free to play in the exhibits during Play Session hours.

Celebrate Holi!

Saturday, April 24

10:00am-12:30pm, 1:00pm-3:30pm, and 4:00pm-6:30pm

Join us for Holi, BCM’s annual celebration of the holiday celebrating springtime, renewal, color and play. Known as the “Color Festival,” Holi originated in India and is now enjoyed by millions of people worldwide. Come hungry, and ready to play as we celebrate a day of art, dance, food, music, and wonder that will make your whole family feel like you’ve been transported to the streets of India (or Trinidad or Guyana). It wouldn’t be Holi without color powder. We’ll be taking over neighboring Brower Park with pounds of color powder to throw in the air. Make sure to wear WHITE for color powder play and secure your tickets and powder early for this unforgettable day!

Sessions from 10:00am-12:30pm, 1:00pm-3:30pm, and 4:00pm-6:30pm.
