Brooklyn Children’s Museum Expanding for the Future…of NYC’s Kids
Brooklyn Children’s Museum (BCM) is launching a capital expansion
project that will create a world-class educational resource for
generations to come. The expansion will add over 25,000 square
feet to the building and house new galleries for science and cultural
exhibitions, education workshops, a new media center, and a much-needed
Kids Café. It will enable us to continue our century-long tradition
of pioneering and expanding museum education for children.
In recent years, BCM’s attendance has been growing by double-digits.
Currently, however, due to space constraints, we cannot open for
family visits when school groups are in attendance. The expansion
will enable BCM to increase its public hours and school group
capacity, opening up the doors to thousands more young people
The capital expansion is made possible by an outpouring of support
from all facets of the community: elected officials, individuals,
and corporations. During our three-year Centennial Capital Expansion
fund raising effort, over $32 million has been raised to date,
