About Bronx Children’s Museum (BxCM):

Founded in 2005, Bronx Children’s Museum is dedicated to inspiring children and families to explore their cultural identities, celebrate Bronx pride and build a bright future for themselves and their communities. Through interactive exhibits, innovative programs and community outreach, the Museum nurtures the next generation of artists, thinkers and change-makers.

In December 2022, after more than a decade of innovative community programming, Bronx Children’s Museum opened the borough’s first-ever children’s facility. Housed in an award-winning, LEED-certified 13,650 square-foot space in an historic NYC-owed building, the Museum is located in the South Bronx along the Harlem River. The new facility, geared to children from infancy to nine years old, features interactive exhibits where families can play, learn and explore together, as well as a fine art collection of site-specific installations by Bronx-connected artists. Now a vibrant building space complete with robust outreach offerings, Bronx Children’s Museum creates lasting change and empowers young minds.
