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.
