"While some children’s museums are easy to imagine in any site, this one is deeply rooted in its location."   - The New York Times

"Everywhere you turn, there’s something to see or do and the space has been thoughtfully and beautifully designed, easily making it one of the crown jewels of the artistic and cultural tapestry that makes up our borough."   - Ed García Conde, Welcome2TheBronx
