About Tours with Kids in New York in New York City
New York’s great cultural institutions provide an unrivaled and totally fun education about our world, from the long-necked Barosaurus at the American Museum of Natural History to the Egyptian mummies at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The world’s first museum designed especially for children, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum offers hands-on exploration. For animals, try the Bronx Zoo, the Tisch Children’s Zoo or the New York Aquarium in Coney Island (with bonus sand, surf, roller coasters and skeeball). If all else fails, simply take a walk—the streets are an endless source of diversion. So are the countless city playgrounds. One of the best: Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6, home to Swing Valley, Slide Mountain, the Water Lab and Sandbox Village. The kids won’t find a note that says "Climb me" on the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park, but what kid needs an invitation?
