Safe Space Policy

Brooklyn Children’s Museum strives to ignite curiosity, encourage life-long learning, and provide a creative, healthy, hands-on environment for all families in our community. We seek to foster a culture of inclusion that promotes mutual respect, celebrates diversity, and facilitates intercultural exploration and collaboration. We commit to making our facilities and programs accessible and safe for all members of our community, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity, and range of abilities.

BCM reserves the right to refuse service to, or revoke access from any patron(s) threatening this safe, inclusive environment. Behavior warranting such consequences includes, but is not limited to, verbal or physical harassment of another patron or staff member, attempted theft or vandalism, refusal to wear a top or bottom, or being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Brooklyn Children’s Museum holds its mission values above all else and will pursue all avenues necessary to ensure the provision of a healthy, safe place for all children and their caregivers to learn and explore.
