The museum is fine, but it's a bit tired and older. They need to replace missing puzzle pieces, etc.

About This Deal

Scientists agree that the only reason adults have children is so they have a socially acceptable reason to visit amusement parks, eat at novelty pizza arcades, and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with today's kid-friendly Groupon: for $7, you get admission for two to the Brooklyn Children's Museum (a $15 value). Groupon purchasers will also get 20% off at the museum's KidShop.

A New York magazine Critics' Pick, the Brooklyn Children's Museum sports interactive exhibits and an almost 30,000-piece collection of awe-worthy wonders to help blur the line between education and recreation. Point your Lilliputian learners toward Neighborhood Nature, where they can examine the habits and etiquette of live toads, monitor the fragile peace between fish and turtles in the freshwater pond, or come face-to-forked-tongue with a 20-foot-long Burmese python. World Brooklyn highlights the borough's international influences with a passport-optional peek at a Mexican bakery, a West African import store, and other global goodies. Out on a Limb (open through January 2) features a tree house, a fort-making area, and other activities to incite creativity and teach children that trees are more than just potential battering rams and totem poles. The museum's tiniest tour-takers can bask in their youth in the Totally Tots exhibit, which includes a Baby Hub for sprouts less than 18 months old, an art studio for pint-sized Picassos, and the Little Theater, where kids can try on costumes and make extravagant demands of imaginary producers.

The world's first museum dedicated solely to kids, the Brooklyn Children's Museum was founded in 1899, predating children themselves by nearly a decade. In 2008, the museum completed an expansion that doubled its size and earned it LEED-Silver certification. Secure future museum memories by purchasing an annual membership (starting at $85), which includes two free months if bought on the day of your visit.

Not valid for group bookings or on October 30.

Reviews

The Brooklyn Children's Museum has received many accolades from New York magazine, including Critics' Pick, 2009 Best Play Space, and Best Children's Museum in 2002. Yelpers award it an average of five stars, and lilaguiders give it 3.5 stars:

  • The “green” building does double duty here, because not only are sustainable features like renewable bamboo flooring and solar panels good for the planet, they’re used as teaching tools in environmental education programs. – Vanita Salisbury, New York magazine
  • Every exhibit was challenging enough for the older children, but also enjoyable for the younger kids. My little one never stopped smiling until we left, then she let us hear it...she wanted to stay. – Matt B., Yelp

About Brooklyn Children's Museum

Brooklyn Children’s Museum is the world’s first museum designed expressly for children. The Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences founded the Museum in 1899 as an alternative to existing museums. BCM revolutionized museum-going with its emphasis on participatory exhibits for children, on an educational philosophy of learning through first-hand experience. Anna Billings Gallup, who became curator in 1903, was the Museum’s driving force over 35 years. She challenged the staff to enhance children’s understanding of themselves and the world in which they live, and to create an interdisciplinary museum experience at the intersection of arts, sciences and world cultures.

Don't miss out Brooklyn Children's Museum upcoming cultural celebrations, including the Food Justice Festival (September 15-16), the Sukkot Festival (September 20, 23, and 27), and discover the brand new art studio ColorLab.
