Friday's Adventure: Brooklyn Children's Museum

We went once before, but I really enjoyed the Brooklyn Children's Museum more the second time around. Please click on the link...the song and cityscape are so cool.

The museum is closing its doors in just another week, to complete what looks to be an AMAZING renovation.


For 5 bucks you can go and explore this spacious, clean (relative), curious space for children. They have a play area for the little ones, a greenhouse, a creature corner, coloring stations throughout, a giant TANK full of books and what looks to be a performance space, a vast collection of antique dolls and other toys, binoculars to look at that collection up close from afar, a pizza parlor (big sis' fave), a tunnel of water (lil sis' fave), a musical instrument room, a mini-stage complete with costumes and pull curtain and backdrops...and the list goes on.


On this day the Library was promoting reading, so we even got a few free books and a puzzle. We also touched a boa constricter...it was scaly.

We took this picture for Aunt Linz, to show her not to be afraid of lizards.

The first time I went, I felt like I had seen it all, but on Friday we didn't even repeat half the stuff we saw last time, and I felt like there was more to discover. I am REALLY looking forward to going back again in the spring, to see the brand new space. If you are in the area, you have one more week to check it out until they are ON-THE-GO, hosting activities at other spots in the city, until their home is complete.
