Current Kid-Friendly Exhibits:
•TapeScape (through Jan 31)
Explore an interactive art installation made from unexpected everyday materials. Built in collaboration with artist Eric Lennartson, this tape universe sparks the imagination and encourages curiosity, creativity, and gross motor play.
•World Brooklyn (through Dec 31)
Play in kid-sized shops based on the real ones you find in neighborhoods across Brooklyn. Be a shopkeeper, baker, grocer, shopper, designer, performer, and builder in diverse communities. We really liked serving Italian pizza and assembling African style chairs.
