Brooklyn Bazaar Family Funhouse

With three floors of family-friendly activities, Brooklyn Bazaar’s new Greenpoint location will be the place to be on Sundays. The Market Place on the ground floor will have lots of options when hunger strikes, including Brooklyn Stars’ new restaurant location with delicious brunch options. In the cellar, you’ll find a play area with ping pong tables, mini golf, arcade games, and four rooms for kids’ karaoke. And if that wasn’t enough to keep energetic children entertained, The Little People Party will host two dance parties in the Concert Hall above the Market Place, one for ages 1-3 (3pm-5pm) and other for ages 4 and up (1pm-2pm). The parties will feature rotating guest performances as well as activities on the dance floor. And while they’re watching their kids rock out to the music, parents can sip on $5 mimosas and beer.

"¡Cuba!"

Learn about the Caribbean island’s diverse ecosystem through this bilingual exhibit that introduces its forests, caves, wetlands, and reefs. Live animals, specimens, artifacts, and models of animal species found only in Cuba will be on display in a variety of recreated habitats. And because Cuba is about so much more than fascinating wildlife, the exhibit also dives into the life and culture of the country. Stroll along an open boulevard that’ll plop you right in the middle of a vibrant Cuban street that’s come alive with music, dance, and performances. Learn about the spiritual teachings of Santeria and how to grow Cuba’s most important cash crop tobacco. If you were ever curious about what the island is about, then grab the family for an interactive lesson. You might just be booking a plane ticket right as soon as you arrive home. All ages.
