Brooklyn Childrens Museum – BEST WESTERN Arena NYC

The famous Brooklyn Childrens Museum is only half a mile from our BEST WESTERN hotel. Believed to be the first museum in the world that caters specifically to children, the Brooklyn Childrens Museum features authentic museum artifacts and specimens, hands-on activities, role-playing, science experiments and arts. The NYC Childrens Museum, founded in 1899, is a pioneer of museums that cater to kids, and as a result, 300 children's museums have been established across the world. The Brooklyn Museum for Children also became the first green museum in New York City.
