Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.

  • This is a wonderful way to spend a cold or rainy day. Young kids love the interactive exhibits, and we love the local touches. But, some of the staff - esp. in the water/blocks portion - don't seem to...  more »

  • For it being the only children's museum in Brooklyn, it's pretty good. It's just that other places are far better with more to do and more hands-on experiences. That said, my kids enjoy this place and it's a good way to spend a cold day during the winter. It can get very crowded at times but on days where it's not too crowded, it's enjoyable. They have a cafeteria with a few options BUT they do offer beer and wine which is strange and cool all at the same time. Bring your own food, they allow it.
  • Babies can touch everything I really like that part. The water and sand zone are great. I will go there again.
  • Nice museum to take children. A lot of exhibits and they have fun classes for the kids. Only negative would be the price. It's a nice place but for the price i'd expect more.
  • Great for kids that are a little older. My 13mo old had about the same amount of play options that the library main branch has for free.
  • Really extensive. Great for all ages. And they made it free for a day!
