Black Future Festival
Saturday, February 20 & Sunday, February 21

Join us for a weekend of reflection and future-forward fun inspired by the national celebration of peoples of the African Diaspora and Black History Month. Àṣẹ Dance Theater Collective will be sharing an interactive dance performance to spark the creative possibilities of a brighter future. In our ColorLab art studio we’ll be creating future goggles and creating a community time capsule to record our future dreams and hopes. Learn more about the Black visionaries who help shape a bright future for us all!



Visitors’ tickets are valid for the purchased timed session and future timed sessions tickets must be purchased. All visitors must exit BCM at the end of their Play Session so that the Museum can be cleaned.

For the health and safety of our visitors, we’ve made a few changes to our schedule and policies. Before visiting the Museum, please review all new procedures at https://www.brooklynkids.org/reopening.

1. Brooklyn Children's Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays and select DOE holidays. Select a date by clicking "Other dates…" above; select a time by clicking "Other times:" above.

2. All visitors, including members, must reserve tickets in advance.

Members: click "Sign In" above in the upper right corner before reserving your tickets in order not to be charged. If this is your first time reserving tickets online, click "Sign In," select "Click here to register," and enter your details.

Partners: For our Play Sessions, we currently provide free or discounted tickets to Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC), Cool Culture, Culture Pass, NYPD, FDNY, Military Families and several other partners. To book tickets under these programs and partnerships, please visit BCM in person and we will provide you tickets for that day or for a future date. We reserve a block of tickets for these partners to ensure there will always be access for our partners.

3. All visitors three years and older must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth.

4. There is no eating in the Museum at this time. We have also closed our café following CDC guidelines. All food must be consumed outside on our rooftop terrace.

Tickets can be exchanged up to 72 hours prior to the event date, based on availability. Due to strict capacity limitations, BCM regrets that tickets may not be available on your chosen date.

BCM has an outdoor roof canopy, and in general programs happen rain or shine. If a program is canceled due to weather or other circumstances, BCM will notify ticket-buyers as soon as possible. If the event is rescheduled, tickets will be exchanged for the new date. If the event cannot be rescheduled, tickets will be refunded.

Tickets will not be refunded if a visitor is asked to leave Brooklyn Children’s Museum because they do not comply with BCM’s Safe Space Policy, our Health & Safety Protocols, or federal, state or local laws. We ask that you review these policies with your family prior to your visit.
