Imagine a place where children become explorers, storytellers, scientists, musicians, chefs or anything they can dream up. Bronx Children’s Museum seeks to inspire children, along with their families and caregivers, to learn about themselves within the richness and diversity of their surroundings and beyond, and to become stewards of the planet.

Join us for Bronx Children's Museum's arts and literacy enrichment program designed to encourage children in second and third grade to think about their futures and envision their grandest desires.
Little Friends of Orchard Beach
Little Friends of Orchard Beach is a program based on the flora, fauna, and archaeological history of Pelham Bay Park and Orchard Beach. Students learn about the largest park in New York City, which contains the only beach in the Bronx, while examining the role that the Native American Siwanoy played in the environmental development of the area.
Our newest after-school program, held at Roberto Clemente State Park, invites children to imagine, design, and prototype art that will inspire actual site-specific installations in the new Museum facility, which will then be created by local commissioned artists.
OUR FUTURE HOME
Our future home, located in Mill Pond Park along the Harlem River, is well under way. Exciting exhibits are currently being developed while the interior space is undergoing construction! We're excited to see it all come together!
