At long last, The Bronx Children’s Museum (BxCM) is open for our children and families to enjoy! This new museum will serve as a space of creativity, innovation and exploration for our youth.
This museum has been in the works since 2010, spanning three mayoral administrations and three Bronx Borough Presidents. The Bronx Borough President’s Office has donated over $3 million to BxCM. During my time as a New York City Council Member for District 16, I allocated $3,048,000 since FY’15. I believed in this project since its early days and I am so proud to see it come to life.
BxCM has ongoing in-school, after-school and summer programming throughout the borough at community-based organizations, schools, shelters, libraries, local festivals and parks that will carry on in this beautiful new facility.
I want to thank everyone involved in bringing this project to fruition. The Bronx Children’s Museum will help create tomorrow’s leaders and usher a generation of curious, innovative youth onto the world stage.
