Founded in Brower Park, in 1899, Brooklyn Children’s Museum was the first museum created specifically for children. With award-winning, hands-on exhibits and innovative use of its collections, the Museum engages children from pre-school to high school in learning adventures. In 2007 the museum completed an amazing, eco-friendly expansion project that doubled it's size to 110,000 square feet. The outside of the Museum’s new building is daffodil-yellow, but its inner workings are "green." In keeping with the Museum’s commitment to preserve and protect the world’s natural resources, it uses environmentally advanced, sustainable, renewable and/or recyclable materials and systems in the building’s design and construction. It is the first "green" museum in New York City, awarded a L.E.E.D-Silver certification by the U.S. Green Buildings Council.
