Driving up you can tell right away that the Brooklyn Children's Museum is an unusual place.
The building itself is fascinating. The outside is a tiled brilliant yellow construction that reaches to the sky. Inside is an oddly laid out but fun collection of exhibits. My favorite parts were the large windows that allow sunshine to flow into the play spaces. A rarity with Children's Museums.
After you enter, your kids will likely notice this rainbow ramp leading downstairs. My kids were eager to race through it.
At the bottom there is a community play area where you can make pizza and more. It celebrates the diversity of Brooklyn, one of my favorite things about our city.
This portion mirrors much of Sunset Park, the Chinatown of Brooklyn. My kids were delighted by the familiar sights.
The under 5 space is long and stuffed with interesting sensory intrigues and play ideas. This music wall was her favorite part.
The water area was his favorite part of the under 5 space. If you have an under 5, make sure to spend some time here. We will definitely go back at least once more before my 5s outgrow this area.
On the second floor there is a building area. My kids could have spent the entire day here.
There were blocks in big, medium and small sizes. They also had these unique wall blocks that you build up and out from the wall. These had a dreamy, imaginative feel to them.
The visiting exhibit upstairs about architecture and building was also fascinating.
Overall, I was hugely impressed by the beauty and diversity of experiences included in the Brooklyn Children's Museum. I highly recommend a trip. We will be back soon.
