General Admission

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

Tickets are available for 2 pm–5 pm Thursday and Friday, and 10 am–1 pm and 2 pm–5 pm Saturdays and Sundays. On weekends, the Museum is closed between 1 pm–2 pm for cleaning.


BCM provides free and discounted general admission tickets to Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC), Cool Culture, Culture Pass, EBT/SNAP cardholders, healthcare workers, NYPD, FDNY, Military Families, teachers, corporate members, and 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 a future date. We reserve a block of tickets for these partners to ensure they will always have access.

All tickets are non-refundable. Exchanges are subject to availability. Because of strict capacity limitations, BCM regrets that tickets may not be available on your chosen date.

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 and Safety protocols, or federal, state or local laws. We ask that you review these policies with your family prior to your visit.
