  • The museum, located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, is across the street from Lubavitcher World Headquarters. It’s an experience not to be missed. The four floors have something for kids of all ages. Hand...  more »
  • What a great local museum for Jewish children in Brooklyn. Our family of 5 little ones all had a great time. We went on a Sunday in the summer and it was not busy at all. Although on busy days it will...  more »
  • I would like to point out, that the museum is not a museum by jews for jews. It is about tolerance and who does not need that? The Jewish Children’s Museum is about teaching tolerance to children of a...  more »

  • Really cool interactive experience all around Judaism that can be appreciated by adults and kids alike. On the expensive side ($13 for all ages), but you can spend the entire day here. There's that much to do and see. So plan around it. Also check out videos on YouTube describing this place.
  • Amazing and so hands on, my little toddlers have a blast here bit I love the place too and am fascinated and intrigued by all the displays, information and activities available. Even though I've been a few times I always enjoy it a lot. In addition they have seasonal projects, activities and displays that change throughout the year. I'd say this place is awesome and enjoyable for all ages.
  • Spacious, fun/interesting. Compared to finding something free, its expensive. I think its about 13 per admission. But that's a full day in nyc, which is reasonable. Haven't been in a while. Your kids will have a blast.
  • Such a fun place for children. My wife and I took our daughter to the museum and she had a blast!
  • Great place to take kids for a hands-on learning experience. Was disappointed how many features are not working or dis-functional. My kids had a great time, they would have loved to spend more time so that makes it worth the money. Would have been nice to see more staff to ask questions or signage how to operate or how things function. Would love to see that attractions remodeled or fixed up a bit, I would definitely visit again.

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.
