Description: Kids will challenge yourself in this new exhibit. They'll test their abilities, explore Adventure Mountain and the Tunnels of Fun, where kids will can climb a six-foot wall of rocks, crawl through dark tunnels and reach the Crow's Nest to view adventures around them. They can stand out on a Ledge, where they'll appear to be three-stories in the air, moving from building to building on a thin beam. Looking down, they'll see firemen ready to catch them, but if they keep your balance and their your smarts, they'll make it safely to the other side. Next, fly through the air on the Virtual Flyer, a kid-size airplane that them fly with their friends. They can work together to dodge a flying saucer, hot-air balloons, ducks, mountains and even an over-sized monster looking for dinner.
Venue Description: The Brooklyn Children's Museum was the first museum created specifically for children. Founded in 1899, the museum's model of youth-oriented exhibitions sparked the creation of similar institutions around the globe, and today the Brooklyn Children's Museum continues as a premier institution for children, its walls overflowing with imagination and wonder-filled learning experiences. The exhibits feature hands-on activities, role-playing opportunities, authentic museum specimens and artifacts, and hundreds of new things to discover about the arts, culture, science, and the environment.
