Ford, ConEd: Bronx Children’s Museum Construction Begins
The Bronx is finally getting its own children’s museum!
NYC Parks and NYC Department of Design and Construction joined elected officials and community leaders in breaking ground for the long-awaited Bronx Children’s Museum on Wednesday, July 12.
Mill Pond Park will permanently house the organization providing a children’s museum in the only borough lacking such a cultural and educational institution.
The $10.3 million project includes 7,600-square-feet of exhibition and gallery spaces and 1,500-square-feet of studio, shared offices, restrooms, storage and performances spaces; a reception area and an artistic entry stairwell inside the 13,800-square-foot museum. . .
