A Time of Support
As the Museum makes milestone progress towards opening its doors in 2022, your support helps us bring enrichment programming to children throughout the Bronx now.

For more than ten years, Bronx Children's Museum has inspired children, in partnership with their parents and caregivers, to learn about themselves, their communities, and the world they live in.

Help us lead the way for children to dream big and create a world of possibilities.
