What to Expect at the Bronx Children's Museum
Kids and families will enjoy exploring the museum's 13,000-square-foot facility. Staff worked with O'Neill McVoy Architects to make sure the space is not only child- and caregiver-friendly, but inspired by the children they've worked with over the years through their outreach programs within the borough. Exhibits include:
Sonia's Corner: Named in honor of two famous Bronx natives: Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and actress Sonia Manzano—the famous “Maria” from Sesame Street!
Books: There’s a large collection of children's books for kids to read.
A 32-foot waterway: This includes a High Bridge aqueduct!
The Block: This features a fun play neighborhood that includes a casita, storefronts and community garden.
The Nest: A special play area for the museum's youngest visitors, ages 0-3.
Lots of fine-art installations created by Bronx-connected artists are found throughout the space.
