The Dixie Family at the Jewish Children's Museum


My family and I went to the Jewish Children's Museum a few weeks ago. The kids love it there. One of their favorite parts is a supermarket designed especially for those who are between 2 and 4 feet tall. It comes complete with a bakery section and grocery scanners which test your knowledge of the brachos on the food. My wife took the above picture of me using my phone. We definitely recommend it as a good place to go with the kids if you're within driving distance of Crown Heights!

We went shortly after it opened. The supermarket was great, as was the Shabbos Table you can walk on!!!

Neil,

Yeah, the Shabbos table was good too. It is a good place to start conversations with your kids about all aspects of Yiddishkeit. B"H!

E,

That's the whole point! Cutting off my face was the point. This is a (semi) anonymous blog. I don't post my picture, or pictures of my wife or children. Kol tuv!

I know- it was a joke :-)

While it does not offer anything on a particularly Jewish theme, your kids may also enjoy the Brooklyn Children's Museum, also located in the Crown Heights neighborhood, which has now reopened after being closed for over a year. My kids liked the museum better before it was renovated, but it is still a nice place and relatively inexpensive.

Chaim,

I would certainly like to try that out. Usually we've been taking them to the museums by Hofstra, the Long Island Children's Museum and the Cradle of Aviation Museum, which are nice. Thanks for the tip!
