brooklyn children's museum...


since jack henry was born, one of the best things i have discovered i like to do is visit children's museums. when i was young, there was a small one in the town my grandmother lived in, and when i visited we would sometimes go. i was a little old for them at that point... it felt more for my younger sister and cousins. now as an adult, i think i'm just the right age to enjoy them! it really brings out the playful kid in me... especially if it's a good one. last summer, i was able to take my own children to that same children's museum near my grandmother in lexington, which has been remodeled and is even better. my two favorites are probably still the boston children's museum (amazing!) and the children's museum of denver, as well.







the brooklyn children's museum was one of the originals... but until very recently reflected that! it was getting a little dusty and out-dated, although their collection of memorabilia was very sweet. well they have kept that originial nostalgic feeling and incorporated it nicely into a beautiful and modern new space. after a very long renovation (boy was i impatient) it finally reopened this month. we took the children on tuesday when jack henry had the day off school. it was a great experience, and we all can't wait to go back and explore some more!
