    Free admission for Active Duty Military up to 6ppl with Active Duty ID. ID must be of a member or dependent. Best kids museum in Brooklyn! I love it better than LI Museum!

    Free 2-5 2nd & 4th Sat of each month is a great deal but everyone knows about it. So a place that's pretty crowded on normal weekend gets very jammed then. Still can be worth it but be prepared.

    For an interactive way to engage your children, check out the museums schedule of events. There's always something new & fun to learn. Pack lunch and extra clothes; sometimes education can get messy!

    Perhaps it was because it was a free weekend day, the museum was packed full of kids. Personally, I prefer LICM over brooklyn. The exhibits here are a mess, the staff here aren't too attentive.

    Born in 1899, they claim to be the first museum designed for kids. Don't leave without seeing Fantasia, the 25-foot, 400-pound Burmese python. (And they allow strollers, unlike most kids' museums.)

    Live nearby? Become a member. Best investment you'll make. We love to hang out here when the weather is rainy, hot, or cold.

    Feel free to bring strollers and heavy coats: the museum may be a long walk from the subway, but the coat check takes everything free of charge. Read more

    Half of the interactive exhibits aren't functioning properly and the cafeteria could use some healthier options. Otherwise, worth a visit

    A great place to take the kids. Free admission on the second and fourth full weekend of the month from 2-5pm. Eat beforehand and bring your kid a change of clothes.

    An amazing space for kids, as you can imagine. Do check out the enormous snake at the lower level of the museum.

    Don't miss the pretend grocery store and pizzeria. But try not to drop your pizza on the floor while putting it in the oven. Doh!
