Meet the Museum

Ages 2–3, with an adult companion

Due to increasing health concerns in connection with the novel coronavirus, and as a matter of care for our staff, visitors, community, and city, the Brooklyn Museum is closed to the public as of Friday, March 13. We are also postponing or cancelling all programs until further notice. During the closure, the Museum will undergo a thorough cleaning. We look forward to welcoming our staff and visitors back to the Museum as soon as possible. We are continuously monitoring the situation and paying close attention to updates and guidelines issued by health officials. Please check back for the latest information regarding additional cancellations and our plans to reopen.

Registration is now open for spring term and May Days! Members receive a discount on all spring term and May Days courses.

Little artists meet a big Museum! Toddlers and adults experiment with and explore art through storytelling, song, playful activities, and art-making in the studio. In the afternoon class, four-year-olds are welcome to join their younger siblings (10% sibling discount for each child; maximum of two children per adult).
