From Our Editors

In 1899, program directors at what is today's Brooklyn Children's Museum decided to transform an old family mansion into a museum geared toward children. Anna Billings Gallup headed up the first crew of curators, who transformed the space into the Brooklyn Children's Museum, the world's first museum created expressly for children. While it is still New York City's only children's museum (and one of the few in the country to be accredited by the American Association of Museums), the success of Brooklyn Children's Museum has sparked the creation of 300 children?s museums around the world.

Today, the museum preserves Gallup's world-renowned passion for educating children along with award-winning, hands-on exhibits and innovative use of its collections, including more than 30,000 objet d'anthropology, from shark jawbones to tribal masks. The museum engages children from pre-school to high school in learning adventures featuring early childhood education, arts and culture, and natural science. The Sensory Room provides an interactive experience for special-needs children, with visual, auditory, and motor-skills-related activities. The museum also teaches future generations about sustainability with a curriculum based on the building's own inner workings, which are certified green by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
