The Brooklyn Children's Museum is a general purpose museum in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Founded in 1899, it was the first museum in the world to cater specifically to children. Its success has sparked the creation of 300 children's museums around the world. With award-winning, hands-on exhibits and innovative use of its collections, the Museum engages children from pre-school to high school in learning adventures.

The museum was undergoing renovation for quite some time and it is to come back at twice its previous size in Spring 2008. The new design includes more than 15,000 square feet for exhibition space, doubling the area available for the Museum's award-winning science and cultural exhibits. At home in Brooklyn or traveling to other children's museums around the United States and Canada, the Museum's signature interactive exhibitions have received widespread recognition and acclaim.
