Building Update: Let it Rain and Flow
We are getting very excited as our next major exhibit is scheduled for delivery and installation this month. The Waterways is a 32' long flowing river where children can learn about the origins of water, the dynamics of how water moves and the many ways in which water connects us all. Beginning high above with a cloud that actually rains, water cascades down a 5' tall waterfall into basins where it flows through a series of locks and channels down to a beach. Soon the sounds of rainfall and currents will be filling the Museum with life.
Cultural & Family Fun in Mill Pond Park
May 14 & June 11
Bronx Children’s Museum invites you and your family to JOIN US on May 14 and June 12 for Music Matters, a free concert celebrating the rich musical culture of the Bronx. Dance and move to the sounds of ¡Retumba!, an exciting music and dance ensemble showcasing folkloric and contemporary dances with rhythms from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Haiti, Brazil, Mexico and Africa. Bring your moves and bring your grooves. Let's all dance and sing together in Mill Pond Park.
