    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.

    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!

    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.

    Very different from other children's museums, my 3 year old loved it. Two floors with many things to do and you can check in your coat , even your stroller

    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.)

    The place has great pizza parlor and grocery shops.But if u had less children around it would definitely be much better a lot of the fake foods were missing.this lady has to where more appropriate stu

    Great place to take the kids. Bring change of clothes for children under 5. There is a park right behind the museum with a playground and basketball courts. It's hard to find parking.

    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!

    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

    It keeps my kid entertained! I feel like some parts of the museum are not finished or aren't interactive enough (like the entire kid-store area where basically no kids want to play).

    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.

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

    Be sure to check out the Giant Burmese Python tucked away downstairs, especially when it's feeding.

    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!

    Bring extra clothes for toddlers - the water play area will get them soaked even with the smock on

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

    Beautiful Musuem. Skip it on days schools are there, can be very loud and roudy. Ugh! Teachers do not control their students at all! Most of them are too busy on social media or texting. Smh
