BCM is the oldest children's museum in the world, but you wouldn't know it from all of its interactive and modern kid-focused exhibits. There's something going on every day, often activities themed to current events (Black History Month, Valentine's Day, etc.).
It has been renovated recently. A blast for the whole family.
This is a great place to bring the kids. They have many exhibits that the children can touch. They can make noise at this musuem. The kids will thank you for this trip.
User review by sherinad – Great place for the entire family or school/daycare care trip. Adults take a nap before coming to the museum. Feel free to bring a packed lunch
A remarkable example of a premier institution that practices what it preaches. – The Scene
Founded in 1889, BCM is the oldest children's museum in the world. But its historical noteworthiness is merely the tip of the iceberg. The museum boasts a computer-equipped library, three theaters, weekend workshops, internships, mentoring and scientists- and artists-in-residence programs.
Fueled by a belief that kids learn differently than adults, BCM's founders and current curators have consistently designed multicultural, vibrant, hands-on exhibits that allow participants to ask questions and explore feelings as part of the experience--now sometimes through interactive videos. More traditional exhibitions involve animals, nature, artifacts and musical instruments; the most popular ones are the mock pizza parlor, the moviemaking studio and an early-learning center for toddlers.
