What You'll Get
By age 8, John Stuart Mill had learned Latin, Greek, and had written a political treatise barring those with no knowledge of Latin or Greek from his tree house. Enliven your child's mind with today's Groupon: for $7, you get admission for two to the Brooklyn Children's Museum (a $15 value).

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 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 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. 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, pre-dating children themselves by nearly a decade. In 2008, the museum completed an expansion that doubled its size and earned it silver LEED certification. Secure future museum memories by purchasing an annual membership ($85+), which includes two free months if bought on the day of your visit.

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.
